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


TŶR.  Scandinavian.  A form of Old Norse Þorr/Thor (q.v.), son of Odin, meaning "thunder."

TYR.  In Scandinavian mythology the god of battles and of bravery, whose symbol was a sword. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).

... And now, tall and slender as a pine, brave Tyr comes forward.  He has only one hand; for when the terrible Fenris-Wolf grew so powerful that he even threatened the gods themselves in Asgard, Tyr ventured to chain him up with bonds that could not be unloosed, and in so doing lost his hand.  He bears a sword as his proper badge, for he is the god of war.  The German people held him in high honour under the name of Tius or Zio. (Asgard and the Gods, Wagner, 1917).
