Uchtepeler was a village in the territory of the Novo-Bayazid uezd of the former Iravan governorate, later in the former Akhta (Hrazdan) district, and present-day Kotayk province. The village was located at the foot of Uchtepeler Mountain and on the crossroad of Novo-Bayazid and marked on the five-verst map of the Caucasus. The village received its name from the name of Uchtepeler Mountain, as it was located at its foot.

The toponym was coined by combining the words “uch” meaning the number “three” and “tepe”” meaning “a hill”.
