Up until 1934, when it was named Mogilino, the name of village was Huydzhekii. In the period 1955-1988 the village was called Zahari Stoyanovo in honour of the famous Bulgarian revolutionary and writer Zahari Stoyanov who was a teacher at the local school briefly in the late 19th century. However, due to the fact that several other villages in the country were also named that way, after 1989 the village was once again called Mogilino.
