The village is commonly known as Angolem among local people.
According to a suggestion, the name Angolemi is given by the Lusignans, after the town of Angoulême in France. Some sources say that a knight from Angoulême lived in the village in the Middle Ages.
Lots of houses are neglected and abandoned because of migration to Nicosia. There are unused vehicles in the streets.
The first information about the population of the village is from the time of Mahmud II.
