“Horpala”, a place name used to refer to our village, appears in writings dated as early as 1067 AD. Later on, the name changed to “Horpmala”, “Orpmael”, “Horpmael” and finally “Horpmaal”.
Horpmaal is situated in droog ( dry ) Haspengouw at a height of 79.93 metres. The name “Horpmaal” can be traced back to two Latin terms, "horrei pallus", which means "house on poles in the swamp" and refers to a particular building, more specifically a castle, built on poles, with a bridge over water, which was situated along the Roman road from Tongeren to Gembloux.
Another derivation of Horpala is supposed to
have come from the Germanic "hurwa", meaning mud, and " malho", or depression.
