When the city was in the hands of the Portuguese, they saw it was a natural water bay. Hence, they called it ‘Bom Bhaia,’ the Portuguese term for ‘good bay.’ Later, Bombay was given to the British as dowry when a Portuguese princess married an English prince. They renamed the city, Bombay. And that’s how the city got its name!
