A Croatian dictionary I consulted associates the name with the word deva, "Camel" and adds -(probably in areas where Turkish caravans with camels stopped): Dȇvčić (2260, Primorje, Lika, Kordun), Dȇvćić (Rijeka, I Slavonia), Dèvedžić (Pula, Vukovar, Velika Gorica), Devèđija (Čazma, Moslavina), Dévić (1370, Kordun, S Dalmatia, Slavonia
