Meaning of the baby name TIMOTHEOS.

  

TIMOTHEOS (Τιμόθεος).  The Greek form of biblical Timothy (q.v.), meaning "venerating or worshipping God," from τιμὴ (honour or worship), the noun formed from τίμ (to honour or esteem), connected with Latin timor (fear), and theos "the divine being, God." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)

Mar Timotheos, patriarch 780-820.  Timotheos was born in 725 A.D.  He studied under his uncle, Mar Gevergis, bishop of Bagis.  After he finished his preparatory study under Mar Abraham, a man of much culture, he established himself in Beth Abe.  He had equipped himself for the priesthood.  While at Beth Abe, an old man met him and said to him: "You would like to become a leader among the priests for seventy years."  Timotheos had many collegiates like himself—men of culture and natural gifts, among whom were Ishu Bar Nun Catholicus and the Bishop of Anbar.  Also Mar Sargis, metropolitan of Elam.  Later on he was ordained bishop in the place of Mar-Bagish at Bagish. (History of the Syrian Nation, Malech, 1910)
