The village was in existence during the Frank Domination era under the exact same name. However, in old maps it is marked down not as Simou but as Sima. According to De Mas Latri, during the Frank Domination era the village was a privately owned feud of the Zappe family. Helene Zappe, an offspring of that family, gave it away -as her marriage portion -to Charles de Lusignan when she married him. This same nobleman, a member of the Lusignan royal family, was the owner of other important villages such as Lapithos and Kiti.

Former researchers believe that the village took this name from the settler or owner of the region who was named "Simos" or "Simon". The name of the village came from the name's possessive case. Simos Menardos goes even further in his theory and says that the village may have belonged to a Cypriot nobleman, Simon di Nicolo, who is mentioned by Stephan Lusignan. However, it does not seem probable that the village was named after the owner's first name since villages usually took their owners' surname.

Perhaps the village was in existence since the Byzantine times and its name originates from the name Simon, one of Christ's Apostles. It is also probable that the village's name preserves a toponym (place-name) with ancient Greek names. There are indications of an archaeological site in the village's wider area. Indeed, a few items from the Prehistoric times were discovered.
