Where the name Negros is coming from?

The name “Negros” for the island and provinces in the Philippines is believed to have originated from the early Spanish explorers who named it “Negros” due to the dark-skinned indigenous people they encountered on the island.
“Negros” is the Spanish word for “black,” and it was used to describe the appearance of the island’s inhabitants.
Over time, this name stuck, and the island became known as Negros.
It’s worth noting that this naming convention reflects the colonial history of the Philippines, where Spanish influences are still evident in many aspects of the culture and nomenclature.
