Tyree

Tyree comes from a Scottish surname, a shortened form of McIntyre, an anglicized form of  Scottish Gaelic Mac an tSaoir meaning “son of the carpenter”. It’s also possible that Tyree came out as a modern English name, a twist on Tyrese or Tyrone, the name of a Gaelic kingdom in Ireland (Tyrone being the anglicized form of Irish Tír Eoghain meaning “land of Eoghan“, Eoghan a name of uncertain meaning though various possible meanings attributed to it are: “of the yew tree” or “born of the yew tree” though I’ve also seen it as possibly being derived from Welsh eoghunn meaning “youth”. Another possible origin for Eoghan is from Celtic Esugenios meaning “good born” derived from Proto-Celtic *esus (good) and *genos (born, birth) meaning “well-born”, making it a cognate of Eugeneor Tyr, the name of the Norse god of war derived from PIE root word *deywós meaning “god” via root word *dyew- (sky, heaven; to be bright).

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
