Etymology[edit]

From Medieval Latin, from Vulgar Latin *tirō, tirāre, of unknown or uncertain origin, but possibly Germanic. Compare Portuguese and Spanish tirar, French tirer. Possibly ultimately from Proto-Germanic *teraną (to tear, tear away, rip or snatch off, pull violently, tug), through a Gothic *𐍄𐌹𐍂𐌰𐌽 (*tiran). Alternatively from a reduction of Late Latin *martyrāre.
