The old seal of the village, where is the Pococucov as a Pozuziw; in the middle of the seal are agriculturally tools

The name of the village is written how we speak it - Pocoucov. The origin of the name can be Podsoucov. Pod is as Under and soudcov is from soudce - it's as a judge. Podsoudcov - Under-judge is from the word Podsouce - Inferior of the judge.[1]
