Sto. Niño Naval

Municipality of Naval, Biliran Province

Sto. Niño, Biliran Island, Philippines

Sto. Niño. Santo Niño. Formerly known as Aslom, after the pomelo (Citrus medica acida), the largest variety of citrus trees [Tramp 1995, 22]. The new wave of Cebuano-speaking residents, presumably not aware that the original aslom (the Leyte-Bisaya term for the Cebuano’s buungón) was a tree and not a taste, did not like the “sour” connotation of the name of their barangay. They agreed to rename it after their adopted patron saint.

It has a population of 2,627 (2010 Census).

Fiesta: January 16

Patron Saint: Sr. Sto. Niño
