Maydolong, officially the Municipality of Maydolong, is a 4th class municipality in the province of Eastern Samar, Philippines. According to the 2015 census, it has a population of 14,743 people.[3]

Etymology[edit]

There are two stories about the naming of Maydolong. Officially accepted by the Sangguniang Bayan is the story of a fisherman who used to travel to the village of Matnog. Because they needed to rest from their travel along the east coast of Samar, these fisherman used to say "Matnog it Dolong" which means "the bow must point to Matnog" in the local dialect. This saying got shortened to Maydolong, which eventually became the name of the village.[4]
