Name

Tomišelj was attested in written records in 1397 and 1436 as Domischel (and as Thomuschl in 1415 and Tomischel in 1468). The name was nominalized from an adjective form of a hypocorism, which would have been *Tomisel, and the name therefore means 'Tomisel's village'. [4] In the past the German name was Tomischl. [2]
