Timian Name Meaning
Perhaps Irish, an Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Tiomáin (see Timmons). Alternatively perhaps Norwegian, a topographic name for someone who lived where wild thyme grew, from timian ‘thyme’. Variant spelling of German Thimian, a metonymic occupational name from thymus ‘thyme’ for an herb and spice grocer.
