Aiho is a beautiful village sandwiched between two rivers Tangon and Mahananda. Due to its confluence with two big rivers specially Mahananda, Aiho has got a long history of its culture, trade and lifestyle. Mohona(the rejuvenated connecting point of Tangon and Mahananda) is the main port. A few hundred years ago, large boats were the main mode of communication at Aiho with other neighboring villages and trade hubs. The sailors of these large boats were mainly from Bihar. They used to call the passengers as "Rahi ho to ahio" to embark on their boats. "Rahi" means passenger,"ahio" means please come. From that, the village got the name "Rahio" which later changed to "Ahio" and lately called Aiho.
