How was the village called before is unknown but the church built here in 1346 to
replace a wooden chapel that stood here before shared its name with the village. Due
to the neighbouring village Ambla had its church dedicated to Mary too, the new one
had to be distinguished with something. Mariae minoris, meaning Little Mary, meaning
Väike-Maarja was the choice.
