Issy-les-Moulineaux ( ) is a commune in the south-western suburban area of Parismarker, Francemarker. It is located from the centre of Paris. On 1 January 2003, Issy-les-Moulineaux became part of the Communauté d'agglomération Arc de Seine along with the other communes of Chaville, Meudon, Vanves and Ville-d'Avray. It is one of the most densely populated municipalities in Europe.

Issy-les-Moulineaux has successfully moved its economy from an old manufacturing base to high value-added service sectors and is now located at the heart of the Val de Seinemarker business district, the largest cluster of telecommunication and media businesses in France hosting the headquarters of most major French TV networks. Today, despite a booming population, Issy-les-Moulineaux harbours more jobs than inhabitants.

Name

Originally, Issy-les-Moulineaux was simply called Issy. The name Issy comes from Medieval Latin Issiacum or Isciacum, perhaps meaning "estate of Isicius (or Iccius)", a Gallo-Roman landowner, although some think the name comes from a Celtic radical meaning "under the wood".

In 1893 Issy officially became Issy-les-Moulineaux. Les Moulineaux was the name of a hamlet on the territory of the commune, apparently named Les Moulineaux due to the windmills ( ) that stood there in ancient times.

The town was once the location of the Château d'Issymarker, home of the Princes of Conti.

History

On 1 January 1860, the city of Paris was enlarged by annexing neighboring communes. On that occasion, about a third of the commune of Issy-les-Moulineaux was annexed to Paris, and forms now the neighborhood of Javelmarker, in the 15th arrondissementmarker of Paris.
