Binmaley derived its name from the Pangasinan phrase “nanmaliw ya baley”, meaning, a place or territory that has been converted into a town because it is believed that the municipality was formerly a part of the town of
Binalatongan, now known as San Carlos City.
The town is famous for its bangus (milkfish) aquaculture due to the existence of its numerous fishponds (pokok in the Pangasinan language).
