^^i know what you're trying to imply. like your country, we also have spanish influences in our culture, including the name of our cities and provinces. NEGROS was the name given by early spanish conquistadores who upon reaching the soil of what was known as "buglas" then, saw these small black inhabitants of the island and thus called the island, from thenceforth, NEGROS. occidental was later added when the island was divided into two distinct provinces; the westside was later known as NEGROS OCCIDENTAL and the eastside, NEGROS ORIENTAL.OMG what a weird name "NEGROS OCCIDENTAL" :lol: :lol: :lol:
