Petar II Makedonski
Според една легенда за настанок на името Гевгелија се смета дека еден дервиш кој дошол и не сакал да си оди од Гевгелија, бидејќи многу му се допаѓало местото. Жителите не сакале да го примат и решиле насила да го прогонат. Разлутен од тоа, дервишот почнал луто да ги проколнува жителите кои се исплашиле и го повикале назад со зборовите гел-гери што значи ела назад. Иако легенда, гевгеличани ова го сметаат за заклетва на предците т.е. секогаш да бидат добродојдени оние што одлучуваат да ги задомат своите идеи во градот.
Гевгелија како град почнала да се развива уште од средината на 19 век, кога населението од овие краеви ја почуствувало потребата да создава современа населба во помош на на минувачите-трговци и да биде домаќин на нивните патувања кон Блискиот Исток со многубројни анови.
