    Name Meaning

    English and Irish: from the Norman personal name T(h)erry (Old French Thierri), a short form of Theodoric, which is composed of the ancient Germanic elements theud ‘people, race’ + rīc ‘power(ful), rich’. Theodoric was the name of the Ostrogothic leader (c. 454–526) who invaded Italy in 488 and established his capital at Ravenna in 493. His name was sometimes taken as a derivative of Greek Theodōros (see Theodore ). An Anglo-Norman family of this name has been in County Cork, Ireland, since the 13th century.

    Irish: sometimes an Anglicized (‘translated’) form of Gaelic Mac Toirdhealbhaigh (see Turley ).
