Etymology

Tema originates from the Ga word ' Tor ', which translates to Gourd in the English language. This plant was grown in the present area and therefore the place was called ' Torman ' meaning tor-town or tor-city. (' Man ' means town or city in Ga). This altered and evolved with time, mainly due to the Europeans and finally became Tema.
