  • The term means in (a region, an area) when it goes with Nam ("South"). trong Nam (literally "inside the South") means "in Southern regions", as opposed to ngoài Bắc (literally "outside the North") which means "in Northern regions". This use may be related to the names of Đàng Trong (the Southern part of the country - the "Inside Side") and Đàng Ngoài (the Northern part - the "Outside Side").
