Ratitovec was attested in historical sources as Boscana in AD 973 and as Petschana in 1763–87 (both corresponding to the Pečana mountain pasture on the north slope of the ridge), as well as Ratitovecz and Rakitovez in the second half of the eighteenth century. The name Ratitovec developed from Rakitovec via assimilation at a distance and is based on the common noun rakita 'eared willow', referring to the local vegetation.
