Parañaque City got its name from “Palanyag” a term taken from the word palayag which means “point of navigation.” A story told that at the mouth of a part of a land area called the City of Parañaque today, there was once a balete tree that when gazed at a distance the area looked like a ship. That is one of more other stories about how the city got its name, Parañaque. The city is first class highly urbanized.
