The River Thames may take its name from the Sanskrit Tamas meaning “dark” as its waters are often dark and cloudy; another school of thought is that it is named after the Roman Tam meaning “wide” and Isis meaning water.
No one knows for sure how the Thames River got its name, but one thought was that the name comes from the Sanskrit meaning for “dark” which is Tamas
The names Thames does not “come from” the Sanskrit word for dark. Both words share a common root in a proto-Indo-European language. The name “Thames” probably comes more directly from the ancient British word for the river, Tamesas.
