The four theories concern the beginning portion of the name Seeduwa. The name may derive from Sinha Duwa due to the presence of lions in the village. However, there is no evidence that lions were ever here. The name may derive from Sinha Duwa because King Bhuwanaikabahu V gave this area to a chief named Sinha. The name may derive from Sivu Dupath because there are four areas in Seeduwa which are separated with small canals and paddy fields, creating the appearance of four islands. Finally, that it may derive from Siri Duwa because in the past this was a prosperous area.
