The old name for "Unión Hidalgo" a population located in the region of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, in the state of Oaxaca, southeast of Mexico. The word "Gubiña" is an ancient word that has many meanings: drought, shortage, narrowness, misery, poverty, a person from Unión Hidalgo or even "palm"* (*= this is something wikipedia has mentioned but I've found nothing to back that one up., a lit. translation would be "Poor/*insert any of the words previously mentioned + ranch/town". Despite being called a "town/ranch for the poor" it was quite prosperous.
