is supposted to have come from "Muang Phu-nga"named after Nga mountain (or Phang-nga Mountian), which is situated in Phang-nga Town.

"Muang Phu-nga" was under the administration of the government in Nakorn Sri Thammarat. During the reign of Rama II, the name "Phu-nga"was found in records of government officials in Nakorn Sri Thammarat, showing that "Phu-nga"must have been a town under the Left Surasawadee Department. It is also thought that "Phu-nga" was named so in order to rhyme with "Phuket"

The change in the pronunciation of "Phu-nga" to "Phang-nga" is thought to have resulted from the confusion of foreign tin buyers with the way it was written and the way it was pronounced. The foreign tin buyers spelled it "Phunga", which could be read as "Phu-nga", "Phang-nga", or "Phang-ga"
