Name Meaning

English and Irish: of uncertain origin:1. perhaps from a Norman nickname for a stubborn person, from Old French tirel, used of an animal which pulls on the reins, a derivative of tirer ‘to pull’. 2. Woulfe suggests that it may be from the personal name Thurold, Old Norse Thorvaldr, composed of the elements þórr, name of the Norse god of thunder ( see Thor ) + valdr ‘rule’.
