Taytay is politically subdivided into 21 barangays. The name Taytay was derived from the Tagalog word "itatay" which means to stop or to rest. It was said that during the early days, a group of Spanish soldiers were on their way back to Manila and they decided to take a rest in this place because it has cool weather and fresh air. They also found out that there are many tall trees with wide leaves (nipa) where they can have shade while resting under its shade as well as water from nearby rivers for them drink and cook food for their meals. The Spaniards then named this place "Itataya", which later became Taytai, Taitai, Tai-Tai or finally Taytay when translated into English language by American colonizers who came after the Spaniards left Philippines in 1898 due to defeat against Filipino revolutionaries led by General Emilio Aguinaldo on March 31 of same year at Tirad Pass near Imus Cavite .
