Name Meaning

Origin uncertain.1. It is most probably an altered from of German Nimtz ( see Nemetz ). 2. It has also been suggested that it may be an Anglicized form of French Nîmes , and so a habitational name from the city of this name. However, the evidence in support of this hypothesis seems to depend largely on the similarity in spelling.
