Liwayway is the name of a leading Filipino weekly magazine. It has been published in the Philippines since 1922. In its pages are Tagalog serialized novels, short stories, poetry, serialized comics, essays, news features and entertainment articles.


In the past, Liwayway was also a popular name for Filipina girls, although it is considered old-fashioned now. There is a young woman named Liwayway in the Isabelo de los Reyes novella Ang Singsing ng Dalagang Marmol.
