The district is named after its headquarters city, Srikakulam. The Srikakulam district was cut off in 1950, branching off from the Visakhapatnam district. The jurisdiction has long been unaffected. However, in November 1969, the district was moved to the then newly formed Gajapathinagaram Taluk in the Visakhapatnam district, resulting in the loss of 63 villages in Saluru Taluk and 44 villages in Bobbili Taluk. Again in May 1979, the district underwent a major territorial change as a new district headquartered in Vijayanagaram was formed. This included the relocation of Salur, Bobbili, Parvathipuram, and Cheepurupallitaluk to new districts.
