In the past, some researchers stated that the name "Thu Dau Mot" had originated from Cambodian language, but most of people claimed that the name "Thu Dau Mot" was a Vietnamese phrase, which combines two phrases that are Thu (means keep) and Dau Mot, whose the first word is a tree called dipterocarpaceae and the second one is a number. According to rumors, in a defense base (literally means "Thu") in Bình An, there was a tree on the hill (tree here is a kind of species in dipterocarpaceae, and it is called "Dau" in Vietnamese language), "Mot" is number one in Vietnamese language, so the name "Thu Dau Mot" was born, which means "one-tree-defense" literally.[2]


Thủ Dầu Một has seen a rapid expansion and economic development since 1997, as the province has become an important industrial hub of the region. In January 2007, the city was officially recognized as a third-class town.[3] It became a city in July 2012.[4] There is a 4,200-ha urban-tech park under development. Thủ Dầu Một will be a modern city within the Hồ Chí Minh City Metropolitan Area (including Thủ Dầu Một, Nhơn Trạch, Tân An, Biên Hòa and parts of Đồng Nai and Bình Dương provinces).

It became a first-class city on 6 December 2017.[5]
