Etymology[edit]

Yengicə (Yengija) is the phonetic form of the name of the Yenicə (Yenija). The villages called Yenicə and Yengicə were created on the result of the building new point of residence by the population which (mostly due to deficiency of the soil) moved out from the main village. The name means "the new village".[2]
