Zagreb name origin

As is the case with the city of Split, there are a few theories as to how the name "Zagreb" came about. In Croatian language it means to scoop or scratch the soil or earth.

The name of Zagreb seems to have been first used in the 11th century. One legend has it that a medieval knight looking for water was told by a local girl "zagrebi", meaning to scratch or dig the soil for water. Upon doing so, he found the water and the place ended up with Zagreb name.

On a more serious note, the origin of Zagreb name seem to be coming from the Roman period, with some Hungarian and Habsburg influences. Irrespective of how it came about, Zagreb is slowly but surely becoming a Croatian destinations of its own, away from the coastline and the islands.
