The distinguished Czech surname Tuma is derived from the personal name "Tomasz" and means "son of Tomasz." The personal name is the Slavic form of the English "Thomas."

Tuma Early Origins



The surname Tuma was first found in Bohemia, where the name is thought to have first emerged. The personal name "Thomas" and its many variations were common throughout Europe during the Middle Ages; therefore, it is likely that several branches of the surname Tuma emerged independently in several areas of Bohemia, Moravia, Silesia, and Poland under a number of different forms. The earliest known family of this name was the Tomicki family of Galizia, first recorded in Posen in 1460. The young branches of the Tuma family were instrumental during this early period, playing major roles in the development of the medieval society of their various regions.
