Xinjiang was called the western region in ancient times. The term "western region" specifically refers to the period from ancient times to the reign of Emperor Qianlong in the middle of Qing Dynasty.

Before the entry of the Qing army, its territory was limited to Northeast China. After entering the customs, it quickly unified most of China. But in some areas, its rule was finally established after many years of repetition. The emperors of the early Qing Dynasty regarded it as their duty to unify China. After several generations of efforts, the Qing government's control area in China has been expanding and consolidating. By the time of Emperor Qianlong (1736-1796 A.D.), the Qing government's decrees could finally be implemented in every corner of China. Emperor Qianlong called Xinjiang the area that was finally ruled by the Qing government. After the Qing government calmed down the rebellion in Junggar, it also called the southern and Northern Tianshan area, which was called the western region in ancient times, Xinjiang.

The name of Xinjiang has another meaning. After Zuo Zongtang recovered Xinjiang from agubai in 1878, the Russian invaders were forced to return the region to Ili in 1882. Therefore, Zuo Zongtang advocated to build a province in the north and south of Tianshan Mountain. In his memorial to the emperor of the Qing Dynasty, he said that Xinjiang was "forced by other ethnic groups to return home". Therefore, the name of Xinjiang has a new meaning. That is to say, Xinjiang has been an inherent territory of China since ancient times, but because it is a lost land newly recovered from the hands of agubai and tsarist Russia, it is named as a province with the meaning of "new return to its hometown". In 1884, Xinjiang Province was established and formally named as Xinjiang province. Traditionally, the word "Xinjiang" has been used to refer to the western regions of China.
