Su nombre es de origen Nahuat, proviene del vocablo Hilotaxca (que significa tortilla hecha de elote tierno) su etimologia es por consiguiente “lugar de helotaxca".

Durante la época colonial se conoció con el nombre de Gilobasco, Hilobasco, Xilobasco se cree que los sacerdotes españoles, lo pronunciaban y lo escribían por error en la pronunciación.

Los habitantes del lugar afirman en forma oral que llobasco es un nombre indígena que significa "hilo de oro" mas claramente se advierte que es una ingenuidad afirmar que llobasco significa Hilo de Oro, pues en ninguna lengua precolombina Salvadoreña se encuentra este vocablo; por consiguiente su etimología es "lugar de muchas milpas" se cree que le llamaron asi por que en sus fértiles tierras crecen en forma abundante las plantas de maíz
