Last name origins & meanings:
- English: probably from an otherwise unrecorded Old English
personal name, cognate with the attested Continental Germanic form
Timmo. This is of uncertain origin, perhaps a short form of
Dietmar. The personal name Timothy was not in use in
England until Tudor times, and is therefore not a likely source of
this surname, which is medieval in origin.
- North German and Dutch: from a short form of the medieval personal name Dietmar.
