The village of Talofofo is located in the southeastern side of the
island and is part of the Haya (Southern) District. This village
derives its name from the saying “entalo’ I fe’fo”. “Entalo’ I fe’fo”
means between the cliffs where this place is situated and surrounded
by cliffs. It is possible that another word gave this village its
ending name. The word “fo’fo” means a bubbling spring. Because the
Talo’fo’fo River and the Talo’fo’fo Falls are located in this village,
the name could possibly mean between the bubbling springs.
