The locality draws its name from the name of the French general Henri Berthelot, who possessed a residence and agricultural land there from King Ferdinand I and Queen Maria of Romania, in gratitude to the contribution of the French Army to the liberation of Romania. In 1916, General Henri Berthelot was placed at the head of the French military mission in Romania, reorganizing the Romanian army hard hit by the German one and barely resisting in Moldova.
