Yamethin Township was established as a town during the time of King Duttabaung in 170 BE (Buddhist Era). The town was formerly known as Nwamethin (နွားမည်းသင်း), in reference to the preponderance of black cows in the area. Over time, the town's name evolved to Namethin and to Yamethin, which is the modern-day name.[2]
