Meaning:Owen's county
Tyrone, meaning "Owen's county," is a boy's name that comes from the largest county in Northern Ireland, Tyrone, or Tír Eoghain, in Irish. Thanks to these strong roots, it's ideal if you want to honor and share your heritage with baby. This name crossed the Atlantic and rose to fame in the States in the 1940s, thanks to actor Tyrone Power. Tyrone has been on a steady decline in recent years, so it's ripe for a comeback.
