The city’s namesake, literally translated to “place with deer”, is of Mongolic origin or “Lucheng” (Chinese: 鹿城; pinyin: Lùchéng), meaning “City of Deer”. Alternatively Baotou is known as the “City of Steel in Gobi” (草原钢城; Cǎoyuán Gāngchéng).

Though central to the city’s economy, it also produces toxic tailings contained by the Baotou Tailings Dam .
