Ty Origin and Meaning

The name Ty is a boy's name .

As Tyler has begun to recede, a number of parents, including the Wayne Gretzkys, have cut straight to the livelier short form.

One thing that may be holding the name back is the tarnished legacy of baseball hall of famer Ty Cobb, who gained a reputation for racist and violent behavior.
