Sarliac-sur-l'Isle is a commune in the Dordogne department in Nouvelle-Aquitaine in southwestern France.

Toponymy[edit]

The name of the commune comes from that of a person of Gallo-Roman origin, Cærellius, followed by the suffix -acum, meaning "domain of Cærellius". The second part of the name, l'Isle, refers to the Isle river, which flows through the commune.[1]

In Occitan, the commune is called Sarlhac d'Eila.[2]

History[edit]

The territory of the commune has been occupied since the Gallo-Roman era.[1]

The oldest known written mention of the location dates back to the 13th century and concerns its church under the name Sanctus Petrus de Sarlhac.[1]

During the Middle Ages (14th century), the parish of Sarliac (Sarlhac) was part of the castellany of Auberoche.[3]

On the Cassini map depicting France between 1756 and 1789, the village is identified by the name "Sarliat".[4] In 1907, the commune of Sarliac took the name Sarliac-sur-l'Isle.
