How did Singapore get its name?

The beginnings of Singapore are steeped in local Malay legends. The Island is said to have received its name from a visiting Sumatran prince in the 14th century who saw a terrifying creature – later identified as a lion – upon his arrival. It was a good omen; the prince founded a new city on the spot, renaming the Island from Temasek to Singapura.

In Sanskrit, “singa” means lion, and “Pura” means city. Thus, Singapore City was born, and today the symbol of the god Merlion – a mythical creature with the head of a lion and the body of a fish – reminds Singapore’s early connection to the legend. This and the sea.
