From Lao ວຽງຈັນ (Wīang Chan) meaning "city of sandalwood"; composed of Lao ວຽງ (wīang) "city, town" and ຈັນ (chan) "sandalwood" as well as "moon, Monday". Though it means city of sandalwood", most citizens will claim it means "city of the moon". This is the name of the largest and capital city of Laos.
