Family name origins & meanings
- English (of Norman origin) and French : habitational name from any of various places in northern France called Tilly (Tiliacum in medieval records). Examples in Eure and Calvados are so called from a Gallo-Roman personal name Tilius (perhaps from Latin tilia ‘lime tree’) + the locative suffix -acum; one in Seine-et-Oise gets its name from the personal name Attilius + -acum.
- Irish : variant of Tully.
