The etymology of the name comes from Mount Mucre, which has evolved and later becoming Mucrone and then Morcone.HistoryModern Morcone was founded upon an old Samnite settlement, most likely the village of "Mucre". Remains of the village still exist today, including a fortified polygonal enclosure (dating from the fifth or sixth century BC) which was later used as foundation for castle walls.
