TOPONYMY
Mantin, formerly known as “Setul”, was established by a group of Malay from Pantai, Seremban. The British soon developed the place because of the huge number of tin ore and they later brought in Chinese miners to the place. Because of the huge number of tin, the British called the place “Many Tin”. However, the Chinese miners had difficulty in saying “Many Tin” – they called the place “Man Tin” instead, and thus, the name “Mantin” has been used up till this day. There are also those who said that the British actually called this place “Mine Tin”. However, the locals, who were Malays, were not able to say “Mine Tin” they way the British did. The locals could only say “Man Tin” and this was how “Mantin” got its name (http://telecentre.my/mantin).

TOPONOMI
Mantin, yang dahulunya dikenali sebagai “Setul”, telah dibuka oleh masyarakat Melayu yang berasal dari Pantai, Seremban. Pihak British kemudiannya telah tertarik untuk membangunkan kawasan ini selepas penemuan bijih timah di kawasan tersebut dan membawa pelombong Cina ke sana. Kerana banyaknya bijih timah di kawasan tersebut, ianya digelar “Many Tin” oleh orang-orang British. Namun, kerana sukar menyebut “Many Tin”, pelombong Cina memudahkan sebutannya kepada “Man Tin” dan nama “Mantin” kekal sehingga hari ini. Ada juga yang menyatakan bahawa orang British telah menamakan tempat ini “Mine Tin”; tetapi kerana penduduk tempatan yang merupakan orang Melayu tidak fasih menyebut “Mine Tin”, mereka hanya menyebutnya sebagai “Man Tin” dan inilah bagaimana “Mantin” mendapat namanya (http://telecentre.my/mantin).
