Yes Sheridan is an Irish surname but Tye’s family changed their name to Sheridan.

Not through the “Sheridan” line.

you know Sheridan is Irish as fuck

follers September 12, 2013 at 6:51 pm

That isn’t really true. But did you read the text? His Sheridan ancestors were German. Probably changed their surname.

yes, I read.

Yes Sheridan is Irish but Tye’s family acquired the name.

This is an Anglicized form of the Old Gaelic name O’ Sirideain. The Gaelic prefix “o” indicates “male descendant of”, plus the personal nickname Siridean composed of the element “siride” meaning “elf”, plus the diminutive suffix “an”. In Irish mythology, the elf was usually looked upon as a rather mischievous creature, so we can presume that the first name bearer was a mischief maker. The family originated in County Longford where they held church property. Later they moved to County Cavan – the county in which the name is most prevalent today.
