The origin of the name "Sellades" is disputed. According to one theory the first inhabitants of the village were Selloi people from Dodona. Another theory states that the inhabitants were involved in manufacturing saddles ("sela"), or that the village is shaped like a saddle. Strabo described the area of Makrynoros as Selaida (Σελαΐδα). Another theory is that the first inhabitants had as their last name Selladitis (Σελλαδίτης).
