The Origin of the name of “Borbon”

One day a boat load of exploratory Spaniards reached the shores of Borbon right where the Salmugi River meets the sea. As they disembarked from their boat, they inquired from the natives the name of the place. Not understanding the language being spoken, the Spaniards resorted to some hand gestures and pointed to the ground that they stepped on. The locals answered with a smile that it is “bonbon”, a term given to the soft clay part of the soil along the shore. Later on, the Spaniards took the name “Borbon”.
