Etymology[edit]

Philippine Spanish, from Iloco/Iloko, the native word for the inhabitants of Ilocos + the Spanish suffix -ano. Iloco comes from an old Ilocano prefix i- (from), and either lukong (flat lands), or luek/look (bay). Some suggest that it comes from Tagalog ilog (river), but this is highly dubious, for it goes against the customs in naming groups and places; + English region.
