Szerdahely means "Wednesday (market)place" in Hungarian and it indicates the town had the privilege to hold a market on Wednesdays (although it was later changed to Fridays). The word szerda itself has Slavic roots; the word streda means Wednesday in Slovak, with related words existing in other Slavic languages, as it is the middle (stred) day in the week. The attribute Duna- (Dunajská; i.e. Danubian) was added in the 19th century to distinguish it from other towns with similar names (in accordance with the "one town, one name" policy of Austria-Hungary).
