Tyson

high-spirited
ORIGIN: French
POPULARITY: 631
No one will dispute whether the name Tyson, which means “high-spirited,” is a fitting description of a world-famous fast-footed boxer. (Hi, Mike!) But that’s his last name, so his parents didn’t have a choice. In the case of basketball player Tyson Chandler and American sprinter Tyson Gay, they more than live up to their name. Tyson comes from the French “tison,” meaning “firebrand."
