The name Tyson derives from the English surname, which originates from the Old French “tison” meaning “firebrand.” In German, the name Tyson means “son of the German.”

Additionally, women of the Latin “Dionysia” - a feminine form of “Dennis” – used “Dye” as a nickname. Eventually, “Dye’s son” (Dyson) became an English surname and it may have influenced the roots of the name “Tyson.”
