Etymology of the name BARTIMAIOS.
Meaning of the baby name BARTIMAIOS.


BARTIMAIOS (Βαρτίμαιος).  Biblical.  Greek form of biblical Bartimaeus (q.v.), meaning "son of Timai."  In the bible, the name of a blind beggar cured by Jesus, mentioned by Mark (x. 46-52) and Luke (xviii. 35-43).

Bartimaeus.  Latin form of Greek Bartimaios (Βαρτίμαιος): A hybrid from Aramaic bar = "son," and Gr. timaios = "honorable."  For the improbability of the derivation from bar-tim'ai = "son of the unclean," and of the allegorical meaning = the Gentiles or spiritually blind, see Schmiedel in EB. In Mk (10 46-52) Bartimaeus is given as the name of a blind beggar, whose eyes Jesus Christ opened as He went out from Jericho on His last journey to Jerus.  An almost identical account is given by Lk (18 35-43), except that the incident occurred "as he drew nigh unto Jericho," and the name of the blind man is not given... (The International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia, Orr, 1915)
