The name of the settlement was changed from Verdun to Verdun pri Uršnih selih (literally, 'Verdun near Uršna Sela') in 1953. The name Verdun is derived from the Romance word *(g)uardōne(m), based on the Germanic word *wardō 'guard'. Although this place name can be understood in a military sense, it is likely that it referred instead to a place where herdsmen guarded their animals.
