Migojnice (pronounced [miˈɡoːi̯nitsɛ]) is a village on the right bank of the Savinja River in the Municipality of Žalec in east-central Slovenia. The area is part of the traditional region of Styria. The municipality is now included in the Savinja Statistical Region.
The village was attested in written sources in 1265–67 as Makoyn, and in 1763–87 as Megoiniz. The origin of the name is unclear, but it may be derived from *Maligojnice (based on the personal name *Maligojь) with syncope of the second syllable (cf. Magozd < *Mal(i) gozd). If so, the name would originally mean 'place where Maligojь's people live'.
