The original village was founded in the 16th ctury as a peat colony from which it got its name. "Ve" is the old Dutch word for peat and " for valley, so literally the name means "peat and valley". Until just after World War II, Ve remained a small community with only a few thousand residts. In the last fifty years the town grew rapidly to the 60,000+ inhabitants of today.

Until the second half of the 20th ctury, Ve was divided into two parts, a "Gelders" and an "Utrechts" part ("Gelders" comes from Gelderland and "Utrechts" from Utrecht, both Dutch provinces).
