Largely planted coconut trees (Mad) formed a grove(wan), so it named as madwan & after some years it became Malwan.
Some people says that in old days here salt was produced in large quantity. Huge salt pans were present in Malvan. Salt producers use term ‘Lavan’ for salt & term ‘Mahalavan’ is a place where you get more salt. Hence it became Malvan
Malvan was an international port which was importing & exporting A-1 quality of goods & materials, In Marathi, goods known as ‘Maal’, Goods of A-1 quality means ‘Maal-A-1’ Hence the named ‘Malvan’.
The flowers of ‘Undal’ (Calophyllum inophullum) & ‘Surang’ (Ochrocarpos longipholius) trees are called as ‘Malya’ in Sanskrit, ‘wan’ means jungle. A jungle of ‘Undal’ &’ Surang’ flowers are called ‘Malya wan’, which become Malwan.
