So far I was told Tighe was pronounced Tie as in tie that men wear; Teeg; and Tiger without the "r" (two people told me this one). I've always prounced like Tiger without the "r"! Want to make sure I'm doing the name justice.....

Well that would be my last name, and all my life thats how everyone has pronounced it, tiger without the r, though it is one of the most commonly mispronounced names there is cause of the spelling it confuses people, but that is the correct way

I, too, am a Tighe and the name is, and always was, pronounced " Tie ". Incidentally, in all the Irish - English dictionaries in which I've searched, it translates to the word " House ". Hope this helps. September 28, 2000.
Cheers, Bill Tighe

The root for the "Tighe" name and at least a dozen other spellings is Tracable to the original root spelling - "O Taidhg" and is associated with at least four different areas of origin. The oldest seem to go back to about the twelfth century. Me researdh had found me ancestory Tighe name bein spelled Tyghe; Tigh; Fighe as well as Tighe. The sound of the spoken word interperted by a recordkeeper produced very different spellings. I tell everybody that is is pronunced like the thing men wear "Tie"
