The term Gingoog originally came from the word "Hingoog", which means "Goodluck", from a Lumad tribe of Manobo who settled in the area.[2] The word implies good fortune, thus Gingoog City means the City of Good Luck. The natives of this place are the ones with the family names of "Gingco", and "Gingoyon".

Gingoog was founded as a mission by Spanish missionaries in 1750. It was one of the oldest localities in Misamis Oriental Province, older than the province's capital and economic hub, Cagayan de Oro which was founded in 1871. It was made part of the town of Talisayan until it was incorporated as an independent municipality in 1908.

In 1957, the sitio of Binuangan was converted into a barrio known as Talisay.[3]

Gingoog was turned into a city via Republic Act No. 2668 signed by President Carlos P. Garcia circa June 18, 1960.[4]
