Both a given name and a surname, Tighe has a wealth of history and a hint of Irish charm. Masculine and fit for an intelligent little cherub, it means “handsome,” “bard,” “poet,” or “philosopher.” It is a variant of Tadhg or Timothy and hails from an ancient family name on the west coast of Ireland. While it was once most common in rural parts of Ireland, it became more widespread across the world following the large migration of Irish people to North America.
