Historical Background

After World War II, there were some businessmen who came to sell their barter goods in this place.  The businessmen belonged to different nationalities to include a Chinese citizen.  Time by time, they were doing their business smoothly.

When the Chinese said that he wanted to urinate, the Maranao answered, "Miya ka Taguidti ku magabi".  But the Chinese businessman did not know the name of the place, not even the residents living there.  But they wondered why one of the businessmen mentioned that kind of word.  The people kept on thinking more on it, of what should be the name of the place.

When they heard the word mentioned by one of the businessmen, they analyzed if it should be the name of the place.  As time went on, when they remember the word "taguidti", they later suggested to name the place as Taguiti.
