Best Answer

The Chinese prior to the Spanish conquests of the Islands of the Philippines named each major island groups according to the established Trading ports these Philippine islands already had.

Island of Luzon = Lu Song Gao = The southern Chinese empire

Island of Palawan = Pa Lou Youn

Island of Mindanao = Min Tou

Island of Cebu = Sug Bu

City state of Manila = Ton Do

sultanate of Sulu = Jo Lo

Ancient Indians prior to 1 AD already called the whole island chain of the Philippines as SUVARDVIPA which mean Islands of Gold, and when the Spanish came they reported that the Islands from Sugbu to Luzon and its inhabitants treat gold just like paper and every one of the natives have gold even the kids.

To this day the Islands of the Philippines is the #2 producer of Gold in the world second only to South Africa
