EtymologyEdit

May be the transcription of a native non-Chinese word.

Alternatively, the name may be derived from its status as the new capital of Shu under the ninth king of its Kaiming dynasty, supposedly in homage to King Tai of Zhou's statement that a new settlement needed one year to become a town, two to become a city, and three to become a metropolis ().
