TIMOTHY Family HistoryAs a surname Timothy has always been quite rare in the British Isles, and its origins subject to much disagreement amongst etymologists and researchers. Why this should be so is unclear, as St Timothy was an original member of the Christian church, being a disciple of St Paul and one who was martyrd in the year 97 a.d. and who therefore died in the first stages of the development of the religion. Indeed as the vast majority of 'names' throughout Europe, do derive from a saints name, it is arguable that this name should be much more popular, both as a baptismal name and a surname.
