Some sources indicate that the word Tumpis would derive from the name with which they were designated to the settlers who were found in this zone by the first Spanish conquerors that arrived in Century XVI. These settlers were called Tumpis. Other possible origins of the name would be the words tumbo, referring to a species of passionflower that abounded in the area in the sixteenth century, or in memory of a legendary cacique named Tumba, whose father Quitumbe established the first populations. Finally, another word would be Tumpi or Tumbi that would be the name with which it was known to the staff that used the old rulers of the region.
However, the most grounded version is the first, which states that the name of the city would derive from the name of the former settlers of the area.
