Why Krishna is called Damodar?

According to Vishnu Purana, Book V Chapter V, because of the playful nature of Bal Krishna, mother Yaśodā used to fasten Krishna around his waist, she tied him to the wooden mortar, and being in a great passion, she said to him, “Now, you naughty boy, get away from the fence if you can. “She then went about her domestic affairs. As soon as she had departed, the lotus-eyed Krishna, endeavouring to extricate himself, pulled the mortar after him to the space between two Arjuna trees that grew near together: having dragged the mortar between these trees, it became wedged awry there, and as Krishna pulled it through, it pulled down the trunks of the trees. Hearing the crackling noise, the people of Vraja came to see what was the matter, and there they beheld the two large trees, with shattered stems and broken branches, prostrate on the ground, with the child fixed between them, with a rope round his belly, laughing, and showing his white little teeth, just budded. It is hence that Krishna is called Damodara, from the binding of the rope (dama) around his belly (Udara). This is why Shri Krishna is called Damodar.
