This name derives from the Aramaic “Bar-Thalmay” (Ancient Greek: Bartholomaîos ‘Βαρθολομαῖος’), meaning “son of Talmai, son of furrows.” The name is composed of two elements: “bar” (son) plus “telem” (furrows, wrinkled, full of wrinkles). Bartholomew was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus, and is usually identified with Nathanael (alternatively spelled Nathaniel, who is mentioned in John 1. He was introduced to Christ through Philip, another of the twelve apostles, where the name Nathanael first appears. Bartholomew is also an English or Scottish surname with the same onomastic meaning as the above as a given name. Bartholomew is a Hebrew version of Ptolemy. Thus Bartholomew is either “son of furrows” or “son of Ptolemy.”
