Meaning:Pasture, enclosed piece of land
Tye is a short masculine name of English origin, meaning “pasture.” A twist on the Middle English terms tyeteghe, and teye, which mean “enclosed piece of land,” Tye might be the name that quenches your little historian’s curiosity for ancient homesteads. Parents with a sweet spot for the sciences can also take pride in Tye as the surname of professor Kay M. Tye, who majored in cognitive science at MIT and later became a post-doctoral research fellow at Stanford University before returning to MIT as an assistant professor at the Picower Institute for Learning and Memory.
