History

Before the arrival of the Spaniards, there was an area where trees called “Tan-ag” grew abundantly. Similarly, the natives named their place as “tan-agan”.

When the Spanish came, they treated the Filipinos cruelly and, ordered that all residents be registered to bear the family name of “Quintos”. Due to the ignorance and fear, the Filipinos did not comply. As a result, whenever they saw the Spaniards or “guardia civil” approaching the area, they tend to “dalagan” or run away.

Then came the Japanese period when they also treated the Filipinos cruelly. So, whenever they saw the Japanese soldiers approaching, the residents shouted, “Dalagan!” or “Run!” So, they run away and hide. Immediately, the Japanese shouted back at them, “Don’t run!” or “Indi kami daragan!” Since they were always reminded of their usual move that because of their fear they usually tend to run. Hence, the place named “Daragan” in dialect.
