The name Tivat apparently goes back to the 3rd century BC. According to most sources, the name comes from the old Illyris queen Teute, who had a residence was in Risan and a summer residence between the church of St Roco in Donja Lastva and Seljanovo. Besides the popular name Theudo, a Latin expression Latus Tiuveti comes from the 16th century. Finally, the name could originate from Celtic word “touto”, town.
