TYSON Family History

This interesting and unusual English surname has two possible origins. Firstly, it may be a nickname for someone of a fiery temperament, deriving from the Old French "tison" meaning firebrand. Secondly, it may be a dialectal variant of the name Dyson, a metronymic of the pet name "Dye", from the medieval female given name "Dennis", itself coming from the Latin personal name "Dionysius" meaning follower of Dionysis, an eastern god introduced to the classical pantheon at a relatively late date, and bearing a name of probably Semitic origin.
