There are many different tales of how the village got its name. The most famous states that many cranes made their nests in the vicinity.
Another version of the tale goes that there was a small forest, where every day during the summer, the cranes hid from insects.
In the vicinity of the village, on the bank of the river Beli Lom between North Pisanets and North Nisovo, remnants of the old village "Galitsa" can be found. According to some older villagers, this is an old village founded during the time of the Plague.
Close to the village, fragments of clay containers, which testify to the fact that the area was populated during Roman rule, can be found.
