He comes to this deductive conclusion, but also relies on the toponymy of places. Thus, the old hearth of the village is "in the valley". As a result, any reference to the locality began with "in the valley ...". Moreover, locals today identify various parts of the commune after the "valley" on which they are located: Valea Iberii, Valea Ploschii, Valea Dinisului, Valea Moşului, Valea Mănăstirii s.a.
Rusalin Isfanoni claims to be of Slavic origin, just like those of other localities in the Pădureni Land, some of the commune itself: Ruda, Govăjdia, Dăbâca, Goles s.a. The Slavs constituted the migratory people who left the most obvious traces in the Pădureni Land, found especially in the toponyms.
The most plausible assumption is, however, that the name of the village was born in close connection with the forms of relief that it is located: hills. Its inhabitants were called "dielari", ie people on the hills. In Hungarian spelling, however, the "DI", "De" groups turn into "Ghi (Gy)" or "Ghe" respectively. So, from "Dielari" it was very easy to "Ghelar".
On this assumption, the Communist authorities were based when they added the "i" at the end of the word.
Ghelari is, like all the Wallachian settlements, an exclusive Romanian village. The most common names in the feudal period were: Alic, Gostian, Toma, Radu, Toplicean. They meet today.
All the mining was the one that determined the coming to the area (colonization) of other ethnicities. The arrival of the first foreigners is recorded in the 17th century: Germans, Hungarians, Slovaks, Serbs and Gypsies. A special category was the Wallachians, brought from the Wallachian country or fugitives from other places but who declared that they were from the Danube Province to indicate their origins as far away (another country at that time!).
