The name of Bongaigaon is the elongation of fig and old village named Bongaigaon alias Bong-ai-gaon situated on the southern border of the town. According to hearsay in the long past, there were plenty of wild (Bon) Cows (Gai) in the surrounding hills and forest areas. So, the villagers assembled from time to time to drive away from the wild cows for protecting their crops. Thus this area was popularly known as Bon-Gai-Gaon.

Originally, Bongaigaon district was under the Judgeship of Goalpara district along with Dhubri and Kokrajhar district with headquarter at Dhubri. In the year 1981, the erstwhile Goalpara district was divided into 3 (three) separate district namely – Goalpara, Dhubri, and Kokrajhar.
