OHMS Family HistoryRecorded as Ohm, Oehm, Oehme, Ohms, and possibly others, this is a famous German surname. It derives from a pre 7th century word "om" meaning uncle, a word of endearment which did not necessarily mean a close blood relative, but could have the more general translation of a "close older friend of the family". A close younger friend in the same circumstances might have been referred to as "wetter" or cousin. As to how these descriptive expressions progressed into being popular surnames from about the 13th century a.d., is unclear.
