The Origin of the name of “Boljoon”

There were 5 renditions of the town’s name: Bolhon, Bolhong, Bolhoon, Bolhoong, and the current one of Boljoon.

There are various stories as to how the town got its name but the one that’s widely believed refers to the first interaction between the Spaniards and natives that occurred at the Baño sa Poblacion.

This spot is the site of a gushing spring in the town center and it is where the early settlers congregated to get their water requirements or do their bathing and washing needs.

The narration goes that the natives answered “bolho” – which is the local term for gushing water – when the Spaniards asked them for the name of the place.
