Tarryn is a gender-neutral name of Irish and Latin origin. It may have originated as a variant of the Irish name Tara, which derives from the place name Teamhair, meaning “elevated place.” Known in English as the Hill of Tara, Teamhair is a sacred hill in County Meath, once the seat of the High King of Ireland. Tarryn may be a combination of Tara and Erin, the latter being a poetic name for Ireland deriving from one of its Irish names, Eireann. Alternatively, Tarryn might have its roots in the Latin word terra, meaning “earth.” With all of its potential meanings relating to the land in some way, this name is a beautiful earthy choice that’s sure to keep baby grounded!
