The name of the city literally means "Large Vineyard" in Croatian. The word "gorica" is a diminutive form of the word "gora", which refers to a hill, and thus it can be translated as little hill or small vineyard. In older sources, there are many variations on this name: Velika Gorica (1786), Velika Goricza (1809) and so forth. The earliest known settlement at the location was called Turopolje ("Turo's field"), after Tur, one of seven Slavic brothers who settled there in 8th century AD; their names were given to nearby places such as Sesvete ("Sesvet's field") and Sisak ("Sisačko polje").
