Assam was referred to as Kamrup in many ancient Indian literature. It was also known as Pragjyotishpur due to the astrological (Jyotish Shashtra) practices that prevailed in this part of the country during that time. However, "Kamrup" became a more predominant name in the later part of the history.

After the census of 2001 the district was divided into Kamrup Metropolitan district and Kamrup District, the former comprising the metropolitan city of Guwahati and the latter the rest of the district. The district, along with Nalbari and Barpeta districts together form the Kamrup region, home to Kamrupi culture and language.
