According to an old legend, a Tagalog maiden named Paz and her Spanish lover, Virgilio once went out boating. The boat started to sink, but Virgilio did not know how to swim, so he called out for Paz's help shouting 'Paz...sigue me' (meaning 'Paz...follow me'). The last words heard from him were 'Paz...sig.'
Since that day, both the river and the land along it are called Pasig.
Nice story, isn't it? That a river and a city wears the name of a lost beloved. :)
