Erykah Badu has a song called "Call Tyrone". It is essentially about Erykah having a boyfriend who always hangs out with his friends, including one called Tyrone. She is dumping him and tells him to 'call Tyrone' to take him somewhere other than her house.

Somehow, naming your child after American states is trashy, but with Irish counties, it's a whole different story. Tyrone has an ugly sound, and reminds me of bullies and chavs. Eoghan is a lot more pleasant sounding than Tyrone. Besides, this name is only used in English-speaking countries. I think that it's strange to name your child after a county in a country you have no connections to whatsoever. What's next? Mayo? Sligo? Roscommon? Have to admit, Monaghan sounds pretty nice, though.

Regarding the above comment, Tyrone HAS been used in Ireland. It was a family name in actor Tyrone Power's family, who was from there. It might have not been originally Irish, but it has been used there. After all, there are Kerrys in Ireland, even though that's a county too!

I consider this name to be very strong and masculine. Much more handsome for a male than the overused and modern sounding Tyler.

This name become popularized in the United States circa 1938 due to the American actor Tyrone Power. There are actually quite a few people with the name "Tyrone Power" in fact. Tyrone Power was a huge star up to the time he died in 1958. I don't think when people name their child Tyrone they are naming him after a county. Tyrone Power pronounced his name terOWN.
