Prachuap was named "Muang Bang Nang Rom" or "Muang Narang". During the Rattanakosin era, in the reign of King Rama II, a new city was established at Bang Nang Rom canal and was named Muang Bang Nang Rom. Later the town was moved to Muang Kui, when the king Rama IV ascended to the throne, the name was changed to "Prachuap Khiri Khan". During the king Rama V, town grew, encompassing Amphur Muang, Pranburi and Kamnerd Nopbhakhun and was renamed "Muang Pranburi" and was situated at the bay of Prachuap Khiri Khan. In the reign of King Rama VI, he had changed the name back to Prachuap Khiri Khan and the provincial capital was established at Prachuap Bay and has been remaining here until present day.
