Thomas

    English, Welsh and Scottish Patronymic name, meaning "son of Tom" or Thomas. The name Thomas comes from an Aramaic term for "twin". The first letter of the name was originally the Greek "theta" which accounts for the TH spelling -- the pronunciation of which was lost due to the French influence in the earliest stages of the name.

    Before the Norman Conquest, this name was found only as the name of a priest. After the Conquest, it became one of the most popular Christian names, especially after the murder of Thomas Becket.

    FAMILY MOTTO: I DDUW BO'R DIOLCH (Welsh) - meaning "To God Be Thanks".
