History - Thiru Kaaragam

He is found along with Padmamani Naachiyaar and explaining to the world that he is the Megham (Clouds) which brings rain to this world to enrich the wealth of the world.

Without expectating any return, the clouds give the rain to the world. Since, Karunakara Perumal resembles as Kaar, the clouds, he doesnt expects anything from his bhaktas but he only the pure bhakthi from them. Since, the Perumal is not expecting from anything but only, the pure bhakthi and show Karunai (Courtesy), the Perumal is called "Karunakara Perumal".

And after that, he will give all his blessings to them, thereby making them get out of their problems.
