There was not so much difficulty in the naming of the village as its name was derived from the very fact that being a border barrio of Vigan and Caoayan, east of the main Mestizo River, it was called “Beddeng” (border in English). There was, however a confusion during the time as to what municipality the village would belong because of the fact that Beddeng is located south of a branch of the Mestizo river and this river branch was believed by some people as the boundary between the municipality of Vigan, and Caoayan. According to information gathered, the early inhabitants decided that the village would be under the territorial jurisdiction of Vigan when Caoayan became a municipality in 1911, hence the problem was settled. It should be noted that Caoayan was a barrio of Villa Fernandina during Spanish time.
