Its speakers never called it "Istriot", but it had six names after the six towns where it was spoken (in Dignano it was named "bumbaro", in Valle "vallese", in Rovigno "rovignese", in Sissano "sissanese", in Fasana "fasanese" and in Gallesano "gallesanese"). The name Istriot was coined by the 19th century Italian linguist Graziadio Isaia Ascoli.
