CUBAY SUR and CUBAY NORTE have the same origin since the place used to be one in the past.  Cubay Norte is the smallest barangay in terms of land area, while Cubay Sur is a little bit larger as it extends upstream along the Nabaoy River up to Bakirohan Hills.

When the first families of these barrios grow in number, scattered around the place.  Some built their homes in the riverbanks of the Napaan river, which they commonly called "pangpang", while some settled in the hillside.  Later the bandits disturbed these peace loving inhabitants getting their harvests or animals or threaten to kill them if they will not give, so these people moved down to the lowlands.  They agreed to build their houses in column along the road going to Nabas or Buruanga.  This idea will easily get in touch with each other or call for help in case of danger.

This system of maintaining this row of houses lasted for sometime until the bandits left and peace once again reign in these barrios.  When these houses were built in row people called them "Cubay" because these word suggests the same.  Later, when the movement for the separation of Malay from Buruanga started, the natives and some leaders agreed to split the barrio into two - one on the southern side which they later called Cubay Sur and the other in the northern side which they call Cubay Norte.
