In the late 19th and early 20th century, Donji Miholjac was a district capital in the Virovitica County of the Kingdom of Croatia-Slavonia. Its name comes from Saint Michael. During the time of Ancient Rome, it was called Mariniana. There are several suggested etymology for the name "Mariniana". One is that it comes from the Roman personal name "Marinus". The other is that it comes from the Indo-European roots *mory and *h1ny, so that it means "marshy valley". If so, the same root is seen in the names "Mursa" and "Marsonia".[unreliable source?]
