In the 17th century, the place was named Soulang after one of the four subtribes of the local Siraya aborigines. Soulang was a village of about 1,500 inhabitants about 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) north of Fort Zeelandia, and became a station of the Dutch East India Company. It later became the Chinese market-town called Siau-lang (Chinese: 蕭瓏 / 蕭隴 / 蕭壟; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Siau-lang / Siau-lâng).
