Name Meaning

Irish American: probably a habitational name from the county of Tyrone (Gaelic Tir Eoghain ‘land of Owen’) in Ulster. The name was used as a forename among an Irish-American family of actors, of whom the first on record was Tyrone Power ( 1795–1841 ) and the most famous was his great-grandson, also called Tyrone Power ( 1914–58 ). It is not found as a surname in Ireland.
