According to the elders of the place, Maninila got its name from "mani" meaning peanuts and a kind of fish called "mani-mani" which is plenty in the area at the time. Story narrates that one day when the residents are harvesting these peanuts and travelers came to taste the peanuts. The travelers stopped and ate with them and said "masarap pala ang mani nila.
