Danish timian = 'thyme'

The name of plant of the mint family derives from Latin thymum, from Greek thymon, from Proto Indo European *dheu-, a base of words meaning 'to rise in a cloud' (related to 'fume'); so thyme might be the plant 'with a strong odor', or it might be related to thyein = 'burn as a sacrifice', which would indicate the plant was used as incense [2] [3]
