I believe it means little devil.

I was told that it means "thunder ruler". I don't really have any back up proof with that, though.

For some reason, I like this name. I don't know why. But of all the Tyrells I know of, they're all mischeivous.

BabyNames.com had this name erroneously listed as "African American origin" meaning "Thunder Ruler". I have the feeling that was either a prank or the doing of an Afrocentric person.

More likely, American blacks gravitated towards this name as a number of them have developed an affinity for names that end in "ell". Certainly a much nicer sounding set of names than the "Sha" or "La" names.

There's the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleotology is Drumheller, Canada. It's named after Joseph Burr Tyrrell, a geologist who first found dinosaur fossils in the area. The name Tyrrell makes me think of "tyranonsaurus", so i think it's a pretty great name for the museum. I'll never be able to hear the name without thinking of dinosaurs.
