The word Naga is a noun and has been taken from the Hindu mythology where it describes a cobra.

In the Hindu mythology cobras are considered as holy creatures and as they are the companion of the Lord Shiva, the god who is holding the whole earth one point of his Trishul, his traditional weapon. In mythological text a Naga is always lives surrounding the neck of the god and there are many festivals also that are attributed to this companion of the Lord Shiva and the name of the festival itself is called 'Nagapanchami' that falls in the Hindu month of Shravan.

In India cobras are the kind of snakes that can be found almost everywhere and they are among the most venomous snakes in the world.

Naga in Indonesian language means Dragon. Probably this is taken from old India / Hindu language which influenced many Indonesian vocabularies.
