Possibly derived from Greek τυρός (tyrôs) meaning "cheese". In Greek myth she was a Thessalian princess, daughter of Salmoneus and Alcidice, whose name was allegedly given in reference to her complexion, which was "as fair as white goat's cheese". She was the mother of Pelias and Neleus by the god Poseidon.
