Rạch Lồng Đèn is the name of a street and a canal in District 8. There are two theories concerning its name:
First theory: it was named after a lantern (lồng đèn) hung at an intersection along the canal to facilitate water traffic at night.

Second theory: it was named after the bladder cherry plants (cây lồng đèn) growing abundantly along the canal.
