According to the local legends the settlement was named after a pasha called Ság who had a castle there. Researchers agree that Ság was a Kabar or Hungarian person name which could be the name of its first owner. The word ság meant in old Hungarian domb (English: hill) or erdős magaslat (English: wooded heights). Vár (English: castle) refers to the traces of a Roman castle in Ságvár.
According to László Szita the settlement was completely Hungarian in the 18th century.
