Tagoloan is a compound word composed of two (2) "maranao" terms connected together. The term, "Tago" refers to something inside, "the content", which is refers to the, "inhabitants", and "oloan", a noun means "leader" in which in its adjective form is, "chief or head" in terms of leading a position in a community or village or a clan.

In today's political and administrative system of government by some other Muslim countries, the leader, head or chief of the state is called a "Sultan". In the present traditional government of the "Moro" nation, the head of the community or town and or a region is so-called a, "Sultan"(e.g.; Sultan of Bayog, Sultan of Dimakiling, Sultan of Kapai, Sultan of Ramain, Sultan of Masiu, Sultan of Ragayan sa Unayan, and the like)". The term "Sultan" is originally an Arabic word,[6] a title, which is particularly addressed to a "muslim ruler" of a certain state or community, i.e.; Sultans of Oman;[7]

The word "inhabitants" stated in the above paragraph is referring to the people of Tagoloan in general, while “oloan”, a maranao term meaning leader referred to Sharif Alawi. In short, people of Tagolaon are descent from Sharif Alawi".

“Sharif” is an Arabic word, in its adjective form meaning, “noble" or a Muslim ruler, magistrate, religious leader[8].

Sultan Sharif Alawi, established the Sultanate of Tagoloan in 1500. Some local historians say it was in the year 1515[9]while Sultan Sharif Kabunsuan enthroned as the First Sultan of Maguindanao in the year 1520[10][circular reference]. Sharif Alawi is the eldest brother of Sharif Kabunsuan.

Sharif Alawi and Sharif Kabunsuan came from Johore, a state in Malaysia and firstly landed in Mindanao in the year 1475 at the islet (now Agutayan reef, in Jasaan, Misamis Oriental[11], visible from the seaport of the Municipality of Tagoloan in the Province of Misamis Oriental, Northern Mindanao. Other local moro historian mentioned that these brothers arrived in Mindanao in the year 1464[12]

Sultan Sharif Alawi spread Islam (prior to the arrival of Christianity in Philippine in 1521), in this town towards Surigao, Butuan, Bukidnon, Davao, Lanao del Sur and Norte, stretching towards Misamis Occidental in western Mindanao, while Sultan Sharif Kabunsuan only preached Islam in Maguindanao.

The Roman numeral "II" was added to distinguish the municipality from another municipality with a similar name when Lanao was a single province. Though Lanao was divided into two in 1959, the numeral "II" has not removed since.
