A boy’s name of American origin, Tyrus seems to have connections all over the world! It is regarded as a combination of the Irish Tyrone, meaning “land of the yew tree” or “Owen’s country,” and Cyrus, meaning “lord” in Greek or “sun” in Persian. Alternatively, there are some sources that say Tyrus is a derivative of the Norse Thor, giving it another meaning of “thunder.” From the strength of the mighty tree or the God of thunder to the power of royalty or the bright sun, baby Tyrus can be emboldened by his title, leading them confidently through life. Plus, with a long list of professional athletes also answering to this moniker, baby Ty could even be inspired to try his skills on the field!
