History of Botong

Several stories are told of how Barangay Botong got its name. Many people believed that the name Botong is a Hispanized concept. It is related that the Spaniard who was visiting the place asked the native name of the place. Thinking that he is being asked of the name of what he is carrying, he answered, “Botong”, which means young coconut.
