  4. Origin: From Tagalog, from taga- + ilog(if the basis of the meaning is the sound or pronounciation). But based on ancient language in Luzon (Dumaget) that co-existed with Tagalog, Tagalog is combination of "Tage" ("Taga(h)" in Early Tagalog) and "Loy" (From "Naloy" of Dumaget meaning "long time ago", or " Antiquity"). This term(TAGELOY) was widely used in Manila before 1950 by elders.Tageloy is a person belonging to this ethnic group while "Tagalog" is the term that describe this language.This provides us the meaning " The resident/People of Ancient time" or " Taga Matagal/Malaon nang Panahon" in Tagalog.
