In the Middle Ages, the settlement was known as Oroszi. During Ottoman times, it was populated by Serbs. In 1718, it was incorporated into the Habsburg province of Banat of Temeswar, at which time it was known in Serbian as Mali Orosin. In 1723–25, the place was uninhabited. It was repopulated in 1767 by German colonists, while Hungarian colonists were settled in the village in 1776. In the 19th century, Romanians settled in the village as well.
