The name of the district originates from the founding legend of its main settlement. A hunter named Khong was the pioneer of the town. He invited people to settle the new town in this fertile land. The people named the town name him Mueang Khong. Later the government cut Mueang off from the district name to prevent confusion with the Amphoe Mueang.
