General information[edit]

Name[edit]

The municipality (originally the parish) is named after the old Time farm (Old Norse: Þímin or Þímvin), since the first church was built there. The meaning of the first element is unknown but the last element is vin which means "meadow" or "pasture".

Coat-of-arms[edit]

The coat-of-arms is from modern times. They were granted on 23 December 1977. The lapwing (Vanellus vanellus) was chosen as a symbol for the municipality as it is a typical bird for the area. It is shown with wings upwards to symbolize optimism.[3]
