The township was named after Tun Dr. Ismail bin Abdul Rahman, Malaysia's first ambassador to the United States and a Malaysian representative to the United Nations, before becoming Malaysia's Deputy Prime Minister in 1970. The commonly used appellation for Taman Tun Dr. Ismail is "TTDI". "Taman" means "park" in the Malay language while "Tun" is the most senior federal title awarded by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to the most deserving figure who has highly contributed to the nation.
Taman Tun Dr. Ismail was originally a 286-hectare piece of old rubber estate land located on the western fringe of Kuala Lumpur bordering with the state of Selangor. Development plans for Taman Tun Dr. Ismail began in 1973 when two experienced developers teamed up to form UDA-Seapark Sdn Bhd, a joint venture company between the Urban Development Authority (UDA), the Government's arm for urban planning and redevelopment and SEA Housing Corp. Sdn Bhd., a prominent private development company headed by the well known philanthropist, the late Lee Yan Lian. SEA Housing owns the township at that time.
