Name Meaning

First used by the novelist Marie Corelli for the heroine of her novel Thelma ( 1887 ). She was supposed to be Norwegian, but it is not a traditional Scandinavian name. Greek thelēma (neuter) means ‘wish’ or ‘(act of) will’, and the name could perhaps be interpreted as a contracted form of this.
