The Ilokano or Iloko people are the third largest Filipino ethnolinguistic group. They predominantly speak Ilokanoand reside within the Ilocos Region in the Philippines. The word Ilokano originates from Iloko (archaic form, Yloco), the conjugation of i- (meaning “of”) and look(meaning “bay), which means “from the bay” in Ilokano. Aside from being referred to as Ilokano, they also identify as Samtoy, a portmanteau of the Ilokano phrase sao mi ditoy meaning “our language origin.” (Ilocano | Wikipedia)
