ToponymyEdit

The district is named after Huanggutun ("tun" means village), where the Huanggutun Incident of 1928 took place. Although the Chinese characters used to write the name of the district mean "royal aunt", the name is actually a transliteration of Fiyanggū [zh] (Manchu: ᡶᡳᠶᠠᠩᡤᡡ, Chinese: 費揚武, 1605–1643), the Manchu Prince Jian of the First Rank whose tomb was in the area.
