The area was named La Victoria in 1843 by the new land grantee, Juan Forster. When the new planned community opened in 1986 (billed as an "urban village") in what had been a remote area, it took its name from the old land grant Rancho Santa Margarita y las Flores (once part of the Forster land holdings).
