The name of the village is derived from the Polish term dziekan (dt. Dean), which describes the affiliation of the village to the deanery of the cathedral of Opole. The place was first mentioned around 1531 in connection with a mill operating there. The village is mentioned more times in 1568 as Dikanowitz and in 1654 as Dziehanowice . Around 1810 farmers bought land there and divided it up among themselves. In 1845 there were 139 people living there. The village's watermill operated until the 19th century.
