Abstract
The village Dioşti (Dolj County) is the only locality by this name found on the map of România. This name originates in that of a family tree Doia/Doe to wich suffix şti was added. The early form of this village name, Doeştii, has in time become Deoştii, and Dioşti at present. Its origin is not related to a geographical place, but has for centuries been connected with that of a family tree of free peasants, owners of their ancestral land.

Keywords
