Originally named after the old Prangin Canal in the area, Prangin Road was later renamed as Dr Lim Chwee Leong Road (or Jalan Dr Lim Chwee Leong) in the 1980s, after the physician who had his dispensary which was located along the road.

Prangin Canal in the old days was a popular water route in George Town for transportation of local goods to and from the ‘Sia Boey’ marketplace.
