TOMLIN Family History

This interesting surname is one of the numerous variants of the surname Thomas, and is one of the patronymic forms. Tom, is a pet form of the male given name Thomas, plus the double diminutive suffixes "el" and "in", Tom-el-in. The personal name "Thomas" was popular in the Middle Ages, partly because it is of biblical origin. The ultimate derivation is from an Aramaic byname meaning "twin". Thomas was the name of one of Christ's disciples, best known for his scepticism about Christ's resurrection - "Doubting Thomas".
