Barucboc's name originated from a mythical boiling lake located in the center of the barangay. Local inhabitants interpreted the name as Barecbec (an Ilokano word), and since then there have been variations on the name, but Barucboc won the hearts of the first settlers.
It is the largest town in Barangay based on population.
