||Meaning of surname Thelen by Regina
There is Theil, Theile, Theilen, Thelen, Thiel, Thiele, Thielecke, Thielen, Thielke, Tielmann, Thielsch etc. and all these names are rather widespread in Germany. They all go back to a short form of given names with the Germanic element "thiot" (people), for instance Dietrich.
