According to history the name of Paris comes from the Parisii, a Gallic town that dominated the region when Julio Cesar’s troops occupied the site. It is believed that these men founded the city between 250 B.C. and 200 B.C. When the Romans took it they changed the name to Lutece and began to rebuild on the left bank of the Seine River. From that time the city was known as Parisii or Paris.
