In Danish the word "tyr" means "bull".

Tyr gave his name to both English "Tuesday" and Swedish "tisdag" (Tyr's day). Tyr was calld Tiu in English.

I'm from Denmark, and I grew up with the tales of Tyr, and your history about Tyr is correct, but it does not means wolf, in fact Tyr is the Scandinavian word for Bull.

No, it's the Danish (and Norwegian?) word for "bull". The Swedish word for bull is "tjur". The word Tyr is probably unrelated to the name Tyr. And where does it say that Tyr means wolf? All I can see is that Tyr was injured by a wolf called Fenrir.

I know someone with an Icelandic sheepdog named Tyr and she pronounces it like the English word tear (as in teardrop).
