According to some old folks in the barangay, the name came from Narra tree because before the Spanish regime, there were so many narra trees growing in the place. When Spaniards came to the place and saw big narra trees abundantly growing, they called the barangay as Narat-an which came from the tree declared as the national tree of our country.
