The Nims surname comes from a place name in Silesia near Schweidnitz.

Nims Early Origins



The surname Nims was first found in Silesia, where the name gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society. There is a record of Hans Nymptsch in Glatz, Lower Silesia, in 1494.
