Rosemary, savory, marjoram, oregano. But I'd probably use less, as those options are generally more intense than thyme. An herb mix like herbes de Provence would be my go-to if I didn't have thyme on hand.

Without knowing what your recipe is it's really hard to suggest a substitution. Is it poultry? Is it fish? Certain herbs complement certain foods but clash with others.

I don't like thyme so I usually go with sage or marjoram.

You really can't 'replace' thyme. But if I think about making poplette(meatballs) with my mother in law, we use rosemary, thyme and lemon zest. I think the reality is that thyme has a lighter, sweeter taste than rosemary, but if you combine a little bit of rosemary, a little lemon zest, you'll get an agreeable flavor with some sweetness, but no one will mis-take it for thyme. I wouldn't use oregano as the flavor is VERY strong and easily distinguishable.. and frankly, overused.
