The name Thomas can have 3 background meanings; Dutch, Hebrew and Greek.

In Dutch, the name Thomas means Christian name. According to Eusebius, the disciple's name was actually Judah(s). Thomas was a nickname to differentiate him from others who had the same name. He was later apostle and became the unbelieving Thomas because he initially didn't want to believe in the resurrection of Christ. According to the tradition he became a martyr in Indonesia. His holiday is 21 December.

In Hebrew and Greek the name Thomas means twin. A New Testament name, borne by one of Christ's twelve Apostles, referred to as 'Thomas, called Didymus'. Didymos is the Greek word for 'twin', and the name is the Greek form of an Aramaic byname meaning 'twin'. The given name has always been popular throughout Christendom, in part because St Thomas's doubts have made him a very human character. In most cases the name Thomas is given to a boy. It is a very popular name in the US and UK and is often shortened to Tom or Tommy.

Etymology is the study of the origins of words. The etymology of a word is its linguistic history. For example, the word etymology comes to us from the Ancient Greek language. It is composed of two parts: The Greek word etymon, which means "the true sense of a word", combined with the Greek element logia, which means "doctrine, study". Combining these two parts gives us "the study of the true sense of words", which can be said to be the 'meaning' of the word etymology. The etymology of names is the study of the origin and literal meaning of names.
