An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The name Timm originated with the Anglo-Saxon tribes that once ruled Britain. It is derived from the Old English personal name Tima or the Old German forename Thiemmo. Contrary to some popular theories, Timm is not derived from Timothy, since that name was not introduced in England until after the Restoration.

Timm Early Origins



The surname Timm was first found in Kent where they held a family seat from ancient times before the Conquest in 1066.

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Timm arrived in North America very early:
