Title: How did Manila get it's name?
Post by: JoeLP on February 26, 2016, 12:24:51 PM
Intersting theory.  Probably has some truth to it.  Pretty much as to do with the Nilla flower.  May Nilla(the Nilla) became Manila.  Here are two sources that pretty much say the same, but in different stories on it.
