The origin of the word Segarcea comes from the union of the of two words: “seges” – field, land, productive land in Latin and “arcesitus” – the one who is searched, the one who is wanted, the dreamt one. By combining these two words there was arrived to the form “Segarcea”, namely “The wanted land”, or “The much dreamed land” of these fugitives who wandered in these forests.

The significance of the word “Segarcea” would be, therefore: distant village, the village of the fugitive people, the wanted village, the correspondent one for their wishes, having a strategic position and being surrounded by the fertile lands.

The first form of the name of the locality found in the documents was Segarcea. Throughout the time the locality had different forms of the name Segarcea: Sigarcea, Sagarcea, Segarcea and Segarcea.

The first documentary mention about the existence of a property at Segarcea is the one from the document of the 10th of June 1416, written at Arges, during the reign of Mircea I of Wallachia. Through this document, the prince strengthens to the aristocrats the properties. Among the aristocrats who signed the documents is also found an aristocrat with the name “Dragomir from Segarcea”. The existence of a Segarcea property, also assumes the existence of a human community which worked on this property, the community which formed a village which took the name of this property. The old men say the fact that, at the beginning, the village was found in the point named Valea Oanii.
