The Origin of the name of “Asturias”
The original name of Asturias is Naghalin, from the word lalin, native Cebuano term for settlers coming from far places. Other authorities say that “Naghalin” is a mispronunciation of the Cebuano word naghaling which means “making fire” as preparation for cooking. This assertion is supported by the old name of an adjacent municipality, “Bagacawa” (now known as Tuburan), which means “fiery cauldron” from the Cebuano baga (ember) and kawa (cauldron).
