There are different versions on how the name Pathanamthitta came about. One view is that the name is derived from two Tamil / Malayalam words ''Pathanam'' and ''thitta'', which together mean "array of ten "family" houses by the riverside". Another opinion is that is pattanam (town) which became 'pathanam'. Thus, Pathanamthitta meant a town by the riverside.

Sri K. K. Nair, who formed the District, is known as the Father of Pathanamthitta.
