The municipality comprises the towns of Elversele, Steendorp, Temse proper and Tielrode. On January 1, 2006 Temse had a total population of 26,287. The total area is 39.92 km² which gives a population density of 659 inhabitants per km². The name Temse is derived from the Gallo-Roman/Gaul 'Tamisiacum' or 'Tamasiacum'. This is also reflected by the French name for the town 'Tamise', used until early in the 20th century.
