NameEdit

The name of the settlement was changed from Selo pri Svetem Pavlu (literally, 'Selo near Saint Paul') to Sela pri Radohovi Vasi (literally, 'Sela near Radohova Vas') in 1955. The name was changed on the basis of the 1948 Law on Names of Settlements and Designations of Squares, Streets, and Buildings as part of efforts by Slovenia's postwar communist government to remove religious elements from toponyms.[4][5][6]
