The name “Cebu” is derived from the old Cebuano word sibu or sibo, which means “trade” and is a short form of sinibuayng hingpit, which means “the place for trading.” It was first used to describe the harbors of Sugbu, the ancient name for Cebu City. Merchants used different spellings of the name from the 13th to the 16th centuries, including Sebu, Sibuy, Zubu, and Zebu.  Sugbu or Sugbo is derived from an old Cebuano word meaning “scorched earth” or “great fire.
