The tribe descended from Taym ibn Murrah ibn Ka'b ibn Lu'ay ibn Ghalib ibn Fihr ibn Malik ibn An-Nadr ibn Kinanah (Arabic: تَيْم ٱبْن مُرَّة ٱبْن كَعْب ٱبْن لُؤَي ٱبْن غَالِب ٱبْن فِهْر ٱبْن مَالِك ٱبْن ٱلنَّضْر ٱبْن كِنَانَة). Taym was a member of the Quraysh al-Bitah (i.e. Qurayshis living near the Kaaba in Mecca), and an uncle of the Qurayshi chief Qusai ibn Kilab, who was a paternal ancestor of the Islamic Nabi (Prophet) Muhammad.[1]

The descendants of Banu Taym are nowadays widely expanded throughout the Arab World in different subclans.
