TOPONYMY
Kuala Pilah is said to get its name from the Sungai Pilah river. The word “pilah” came from the word “bilah buluh” (“bilah” is a Malay numeral classifier for “blade-shaped, or thin-long objects”; “buluh” refers to “bamboo”). Bamboos were found in large quantities within the area and were used to make household items like baskets etc. In the process of making baskets, the bamboos had to be cut into thin and long pieces. The word “Bilah” somehow changed to “Pilah” and that is how “Kuala Pilah” got its name (http://diamondhill55.blogspot.com/2009/03/asal-usul-nama-kuala-pilah.html)

TOPONOMI
Kuala Pilah dikatakan telah mendapat namanya dari sebatang sungai, iaitu Sungai Pilah. Perkataan “pilah” berasal daripada perkataan “bilah buluh”. Ini kerana terdapatnya banyak pohon-pohon buluh yang tumbuh di kawasan ini. Buluh dijadikan peralatan untuk kegunaan harian seperi raga dan sebagainya. Dalam proses menjadi raga dari buluh, buluh perlulah dibelah kecil-kecil dan diraut untuk dijadikan bilah-bilah buluh. “Bilah” lama-kelamaannya bertukar sebutan menjadi “Pilah” (http://diamondhill55.blogspot.com/2009/03/asal-usul-nama-kuala-pilah.html).
