I can't help but notice how many Tims there are in here.
I changed my name to Timothy just to keep things a little different,
Iv'e seen 2 Timmys too,
Is there a type 1 Tim factor?
I rarely run into anyone else with the name, but on here it's everywhere,
This may be a new research study,
I'm sure some student will come on here and ask us to take a survey about our relationship with Tims. Sorry, I couldn't resist.
My husband is Tim...but not a T1!
I'm a closet Tim, so there are even more of us than you realize! T2 though
LOL! Hopefully the study will ask if we have any relatives with the name or version of the name Tim :)
they need to take this name out of circulation for a few decades to see if it stops T1D from developing lol
we are plotting to take over the world
From Wikipedia "In the United States, the name was most popular in the 1960s, ranking 13th among all boy's names. Popularity for the name has since declined with its latest rating of 110th in 2009." I was born in 1950 and so was a trendsetter and didn't even know it.
One wonders if forms of the name in other languages, like Timeteo, would exhibit the same effect?
The mystery deepens.
So the obvious conclusion is that women who carry the gene that has them name their sons Timothy also carry the gene to pass on T1. Right? Huh? :)
Your logic is impeccable pup.
I hereby declare today "Tim Day"!!!!
In commemoration of "Tim Day" I am going to change my name to Tim. I hope I remember to change it back.
