Meaning & History

From Suluk, the Malay name for the Tausug people, in turn derived from Tausug Tau Sūg meaning "people of the current", from tau meaning "man, person" and sūg meaning "(sea) current, flow of water". This is the name of a sea in the southwestern Philippines as well as a Philippine province. Historically, this was also the name of a Muslim sultanate that ruled parts of the present-day Philippines, Malaysia, and Indonesia.
