Tyrone Name Meaning
Irish American: probably a habitational name from the county of Tyrone (Gaelic Tir Eoghain ‘land of Owen’) in Ulster. The name was used as a forename among an Irish-American family of actors, of whom the first on record was Tyrone Power (1795–1841) and the most famous was his great-grandson, also called Tyrone Power (1914–58). It is not found as a surname in Ireland.
