Rev Patrick Woulfe

TIOMÓID, genitive — id. (the same), Timothy; Greek Τιμóθεος (Timotheos), honouring God; an ancient name, in use even in pagan times; borne by the disciple of St. Paul. In Ireland, it appears to be of comparatively recent introduction and is very rare. Timothy as an anglicised form of Tadhg (which see) is, however, very common, but does not appear to have been in use before the Cromwellian period. Latin — Timotheus.

Note: The old Irish letters used in the original text* have been converted to the Roman alphabet for this online version, and the lenited (or dotted) consonants changed to their aspirated equivalents, i.e. the dotted 'c' has been altered to 'ch', the dotted 'g' to 'gh', and the dotted 'm' to 'mh', etc. For example, in the name Caoimgin (Kevin), where the 'm' and 'g' are both dotted (ṁ, ġ) in the old Irish lettering, the name has been converted here to the modern Irish equivalent of Caoimhghin.
