Origin of the name TIGERNONOS.
Etymology of the name TIGERNONOS.
Meaning of the baby name TIGERNONOS.


TIGERNONOS.  A Celtic name meaning "the divine lord."  Some authors render it "great king."  See note under Tigernos.

... -onos and -ona were favourite Keltic terminations for the names of gods and goddesses respectively, and certain Welsh names ending in -on of legendary characters appear from their very structure to have been at one time the names of deities.  In addition to Mabon (Maponos) and Modron (Matrona), already mentioned, may be adduced Rhiannon (Regantona), meaning "the divine queen," Teyrnon (Tigernonos), "the divine lord," Banon (Banona), "the divine lady," Amaethon (Ambactonos), "the divine husbandman," Gofannon (Gobannonos), "the divine smith."  The two latter names suggest the existence among the Kelts of Britain of departmental deities... (The Cambridge Medieval History, Bury, v.2, 1913)
