Setif’s name is drawn from the tamazight (aka berbere) word “Z’dif”, which means “black lands” and refers to the fertility of its lands. Z’dif was an important city of the Amazigh kingdom of Numidia, to later become Setifis, the capital of Mauratania Sitifensis, before finally becoming Musim Setif during the Muslim futuhat (conquest) of the Maghreb.
