ED NOTE: The word Ranau originated from the word 'RANAHON' which means PADDY FIELD. Usually the Kadazandusuns in Ranau are involved in hill paddy due to the hilly geographical structure. But on low land, paddy is farmed in watery places/fields or 'padi sawah' which locals called it 'RANAHON'. So, in short, the word 'RANAHON' became 'RANAU'.
