ABSTRACT

This research looks at the process and features of taking the same geographical names in the small region by focusing on formation process of two ‘Sungsu-Myeon’ and three ‘Mountain Sungsu’ present in Imshil and Jinan Gun district. The research results are as follows. First, the nomination of ‘Holy Life (聖壽)’ was derived from the legend of related Yi-dynasty at Sang-i temple located in Imshil Mt. Sungsu, and the naming time might be estimated since 1394. Second, the first named it among the three Mt. Sungsu seen as Imshil Mt. Sungsu, and Baek-un Myeon’s Mt. Sungsu and Sungsu Myeon’s Mt. Sungsu are after that. That naming time can be seen before 1700s. They have the symbolic features which are Imshil Mt. Sungsu (876 m) in the historical aspect, and Baek-un Mt. Sungsu (1,059 m) in the geographical aspect. Third, Mt. Sungsu is the presence in the first, and appeared Sungsu Myeon as a new administrative district in 1914. Imshil Sungsu Myeon had originated in Imshil Mt. Sungsu (876 m) and Jinan Sungsu Myeon was derived from Mt. Sungsu (482 m) located in Sungsu Myeon.
