Like other municipalities in the Philippines that retained Spanish-based orthography, the city name is spelled as Gingoog but is pronounced as ['hiŋuʔog] or HEE-ngu-og since it originated as a Binukid word.

HistoryEdit

The term Gingoog originally came from the word "Hingoog", which means "Goodluck", from a Lumad tribe of Manobo who settled in the area.[5] The word implies good fortune, thus Gingoog means the City of Good Luck. The natives of this place are the ones with the family names of "Gingco", and "Gingoyon".

Gingoog was founded as a mission by Spanish missionaries in 1750. It was one of the oldest localities in Misamis Oriental Province, older than the province's capital and economic hub, Cagayan de Oro which was founded in 1871. It was made part of the town of Talisayan until it was incorporated as an independent municipality in 1908.

In 1957, the sitio of Binuangan was converted into a barrio known as Talisay.[6]

CityhoodEdit

Gingoog was turned into a city via Republic Act No. 2668 signed by President Carlos P. Garcia circa June 18, 1960.[7]

GeographyEdit

Gingoog is located in the Province of Misamis Oriental in the Northern Mindanao Region on Mindanao island. The city is approximately 122 kilometres (76 mi) east of Cagayan de Oro and 74 kilometres (46 mi) west of Butuan. It is bounded on the east by the Municipality of Magsaysay; on the west by the Municipality of Medina; on the south by the Municipality of Claveria; and on the north by Gingoog Bay. Its total land area is 56,844 hectares (140,460 acres).
