Name Meaning

1 Polish: possibly from the personal name Cyrus, derived from the Greek form, Kyros, of the name of several kings of Persia. The origin of the name is not known, but in the early Christian period it was associated with Greek kyrios ‘lord’, and borne by various saints, including an Egyptian martyr and a bishop of Carthage.2 Possibly an Americanized spelling of the Greek family name Kyros, from the personal name (see 1 above).
