Name

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.
