According to a folk tradition the village of Divči gained its name after a farmer named Divkač who had an extensive property on this area and a flock of sheep. After his death (around 1700) some other inhabitants built their houses on this area and so a condensed village was created. At first the village was named Rožce, but then the villagers changed it and named it after its first landlord. Until the Second World War the village was under the village of Komen, but now is an independent hamlet.
