Tyrer Name Meaning
English (Lancashire): of unknown origin. It is possible that it arose as an occupational name for an official in charge of the wardrobe of a great personage, from an agent derivative of Middle English tire(n) ‘to equip, dress’ (a reduced form of Old French atir(i)er). However, there is no early evidence for this.
