Tully name meaning:

The name Tully, primarily used as a boy's name, has origins that trace back to both Irish and Latin roots, embodying a rich tapestry of cultural significance and history. In its Irish derivation, Tully comes from an Anglicized form of the Gaelic surname "Ó Taithligh," which means "descendant of Taithleach." Taithleach is an old Gaelic personal name meaning "peaceful" or "abundance," suggesting qualities of tranquility and prosperity that could be aspired to in a person bearing this name.

From its Latin origin, Tully translates to “peaceful,” derived from the name Tullius.
