Finding Package Name with apt-cache

To search for a particular package name with its dependency use:
apt-cache search
For e.g. to search for superkaramba use
apt-cache search karamba
and I get a response like this
libu@toxicware:~$ apt-cache search karamba
karamba - A program improving the eyecandy of KDE
memaid-pyqt - memorization tool with optimal question scheduling
superkaramba - a program based on karamba improving the eyecandy of KDE
