Timea Nagy is a Hungarian Canadian who was trafficked from Hungary to Canada for forced prostitution in 1998. She escaped after three and a half months. In 2009, she said that about nine years passed after her escape before she was able to "find a new reason to get up in the morning." She said that she still couldn't rid herself of the fear that her three captors would recapture her. In 2010, she said that her experience of sexual slavery continued to affect her "in every possible way you can think of... This is the only way people know me now. This is all I talk about."

The name TIMEA has a very clear connotation with ancient Greek names TIMAEA, TIMAEUS.
TIMAEA (Tt)ua£a), was the wife of Agis II, the Eurypontid king of Sparta.
TIMAEUS (Ancient Greek: Τίμαιος, Timaios, pronounced [tǐmaɪ̯os]) is one of Plato's dialogues, mostly in the form of a long monologue given by the title character, written circa 360 BC.
Mór Jókai used for first time in 1872 the name written in actual form TIMEA but the origins are on ancient Greek.

This name has no connection with Timaeus, but a short form of the Greek name Euthymia. The creator of this name was Mór Jókai, in The Golden Man - it is true.

Well Tímea (or Timéa in the novel) is a beautiful character in the novel Golden Man. She is a very pure and innocent young woman, but cold and strong as marble through all the things that happen to her. And always grateful - and faithful to her husband even if her heart fell for an other man. A very typical depiction of the romantic era women. Very beautiful and very contrasting, and quite sad.
