Taryn is an offshoot of Tara or Tyrone that has a variety of meanings in a variety of cultures. In 1953, Taryn was presented to the public as an invention by actors Tyrone Power and Linda Christian for their daughter's name, at which point it gained a short spurt of popularity. Taryn returned to the Top 1000 in 1974, peaking in 1986 at Number 327, and has remained--in decreasing numbers-- on the list ever since.
Nicollette Sheridan played a character named Taryn Blake in a 1980's TV series, and Taryn Baker is the name of an O.C. character.
