A long time ago, there lived an old couple near the seashore of sitio Baleyadaan, where there was a big church built by the Spaniards. This man and his wife engaged in cooking salt. One day, two of the cabos (officer) of the governor’s soldiers at that time came to this place, at the old man’s hut to buy the pig the couple owned.

The old couple agreed because they were afraid or even ashamed to refuse. Then they called the pig saying the words “Yu-cay, Yu-cay, Yu-cay’’ and the pig came near them. The soldiers laughed as they heard of these words and kept it mind. When the soldiers came back again and arrived in Sitio Baleyadaan, they said they will call the place “Cayucay.’’
