There are two theories of possible origin of the name of 'Trpanj':

If the word Trpanj comes from a verb "trpjeti", meaning to endure, to suffer, to bear, then the name represents the sufferings that first inhabitants had to endure since the nature did not give them furtile land and wide fields to cultivate successfully.

 

They had to suffer watching their village surrounded by the scanty fields filled with cliffs and karrens from one side and with high mountains from the other.

Maybe the name has its origins in Greek language, since it comes from the word sickle. Indeed, the cliffs jutting from the sea and surrounding the harbour realy remind us of the sickle.
