I think it can also be a Dutch name. But I know it isn't Dutch in origin.

In Swedish (maybe also in Danish) the name is pronounced as "tüko". The "Y"" is closer to "EE" than to "IE".

Tycho is the name of a prominent impact crater on the surface of the moon. It was named after Tycho Brahe, and its rim was the landing site of the 1968 robotic Surveyor 7 mission. Tycho has sharply defined edges, being pretty "young" for a big crater--only about 100 million years old. This makes Tycho easy to spot: It's in the southern lunar highlands and it's surrounded by smaller craters and well-known ray system (fragmented material from the original impact). Tycho's rays have been depicted on lunar maps since the mid-1600s and are up to 1500 km long.

There's another crater named "Tycho Brahe" on Mars.
