Origin of the name
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.
But it isn't sure. Because in the history we can see the Poczauczow (1556), Pacúlcow (1558), Pozuziw (at old seal of the village) and the mayor of Třebíč was called Jan Podcaucowský (John of Pocoucov).
From the prehistory there was found only one neolithic celt.

Since 1 January 1980 Pocoucov has been the town district of Třebíč.
