TRIVIA: Ang Montalban ay hango sa salitang Monte Alba na ang ibig sabihin sa espanyol ay “Bundok ng Bukang-Liwayway” at “Makinang na Puting Bundok” naman sa wikang latin. Tinawag itong Montalban dahil sa kilala nating bundok Pamintinan at Binicayan (Wawa) dahil sa mga puting bato nito at nagnining sila sa umaga sa pagsilip ng araw pag bukang-liwayway.
