Meaning & History

Meaning uncertain, perhaps in part derived from Khmer or from Vietnamese thủ meaning "keep, guard", dầu referring to a type of tree (genus Dipterocarpus) and một meaning "one" (or from miệt vườn meaning "plantation, orchard, grove", according to a folk etymology). This is the name of a city in Vietnam.
