The Ancient Norse God "TYR" and Turkish "TUR" (Part-1)

By Polat Kaya

We have the following basic information regarding the ancient Norse God TYR given at Wikipedia link

"Tır (/'t??r/;[1] Old Norse: Tır [ty?r]) is a god associated with law and heroic glory in Norse mythology, portrayed as one-handed. Corresponding names in other Germanic languages are Gothic Teiws, Old English Tiw and Old High German Ziu and Cyo, all from Proto-Germanic *Tîwaz (*Te2waz). The Latinised name is Tius or Tio.[2]

In the late Icelandic Eddas, Tyr is portrayed, alternately, as the son of Odin (Prose Edda) or of Hymir (Poetic Edda), while the origins of his name and his possible relationship to Tuisto (see Tacitus' Germania) suggest he was once considered the father of the gods and head of the pantheon, since his name is ultimately cognate to that of *Dyeus (cf. Dyaus), the reconstructed chief deity in Indo-European religion. It is assumed that Tîwaz was overtaken in popularity and in authority by both Odin and Thor at some point during the Migration Age, as Odin shares his role as God of war.

Tiw was equated with Mars in the interpretatio germanica. Tuesday is in fact "Tiw's Day" (also in Alemannic Zischtig from zîes tag), translating dies Martis.

Tır in origin was a generic noun meaning "god", e.g. Hangatyr, literally, the "god of the hanged", as one of Odin's names, which was probably inherited from Tyr in his role as god of justice. The name continues on as Norwegian Ty, Swedish Tyr, Danish Tyr, while it remains Tır in Modern Icelandic and Faroese."



Polat Kaya: In the above reference, based on the old Norse Mythology, we have a description of the god TYR (TUR) of the ancient NORSE (Norwegian) people. TYR (TUR) is said to be the son of Odin - once regarded as the father of all gods, with great wisdom and courage, a law and justice giver, represented as a one-handed man and was the God of war.

The name TUR is the ancient one name of the Sky-God and the name of the ancestral father man of the Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples. That very name TUR comes to the present times in Turkish names such as TUR, TURK, TURHAN, TURKAN, TURAN, TANRU, TURÇA or TÜRKÇE and many other other TUR related names in Turkish culture! So, his Turanian Turkish identity is unquestionable. Evidently, the name TÜRKÇE of the Turkish language is coined after the name TUR and TURK!

Even presently in Turkish, when a concept is defined verbally, his name TUR or DUR is used as the ending suffix - as if it was an official seal that is added as proof of representation. For example, the saying "Tanri-tur" meaning "it is God" or "God is Tur", the saying "ana-tur" meaning "she is mother", the saying "ata-tur" meaning "he is father", the saying "ay-tur" meaning "it is moon", the saying "Gün-tur" meaning "it is Sun", the saying "okul-tur" meaning "it is school", etc.. Thus the name TUR is ever present in the Turkish language.

Similar to writings in Turkish, the God TYR (TUR) in old Norse writings also appears as a "dr" or "tyr" suffix in many words. For example, "A number of Icelandic male names are derived from Tır. Apart from Tır itself: Angantır, Bryntır, Hjálmtır, Hrafntır, Sigtır, Valtır and Vigtır. When Tır is used in this way, joined to another name, it takes on a more general meaning of "a god" instead of referring to the god Tır. For example, Hrafntır "raven-god" and Valtır "god of the slain" are Old Norse names of Odin." This indicates the Turanian (Turkish) identity of, not only the Norwegians, but also the Icelanders as well.

Even the name VALTYR meaning "god of the slain", deciphered as "VLATYR", is an altered and Aryanized form of the Turkish saying "ÖLÜTUR" meaning "he is dead, he is slain". Thus the term VAL meaning "slain, dead" is the altered form of the Turkish word "ÖLÜ" meaning "dead". Again this indicates that all of these ancient Norse and Germanic peoples were none other than Turkish speaking Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples before they were Aryanized and Christianized!

In the above reference, the Norse God TUR is said to be: "Tyr, who was a patron god of battle, law, war and bravery, is one of the oldest of the Norse gods". But TUR is the ancestral name of the Turanian TUR/TURK/OGUZ peoples. Additionally, the Turanian TUR/TURK/OGUZ peoples are known to be brave and superb warriors of the ancient world. They are also known as the justice givers. This is because in Turkish, the name TYR (TUR) is also the source of the Turkish word TURA (TUGRA) which was the "royal seal" that was affixed on all laws of the country. Additionally, TUR is the root of the Turkish word TÖRE that means "law, justice, rules, way of administration". Thus, god TYR (TUR) gets his "law and justice giving quality" from Turkish words TÖRE and TURA (TUGRA). With these definitions, again Turkish TUR fits the description of the ancient Scandinavian god name TYR (TUR). The letter Y in the name TYR is an alienation aberration inflicted on this Turkish word in Aryanizing it! Even the so-called Jewish TORAH, meaning "law", is none other than the Turkish word TÖRE as defined here. Clearly, TORAH has also been alienated from Turkish! Furthermore, the name SCANDINAVIA deciphered as "SAKANIN-AVIDI" is the altered form of the Turkish saying "SAKA'NIN EVIDI" meaning "it is the Home of SAKA (Turks)". All of these also make the name Tur none other than the ancient Turanian God TUR! of the Tur/Tur/Oguz peoples!

And lastly, the name TYR (TUR) has a Turco-Sumerian connection in the form of "UTU-ER" meaning "Sun-God Soldier". Additionally in Turkish, UT means "the bull". In Turanian civilization, one logo of God is the Bull (UTU, OGUZ, ÖKÜZ, O-KÖZ). But the Bull is a fighter, a soldier, that is, ER in Turkish. Furthermore, Turkish UT (OD) also means "the fire" which refers to the fire of the Sun.

The Wikipedia reference source above also describes the god TYR as: "TİR (/'t??r/, Old Norse: TİR [ty?r]) is a god associated with law and heroic glory in Norse mythology, portrayed as one-handed. Corresponding names in other Germanic languages are Gothic TEIWS, Old English TIW and Old High German ZIU and CYO, all from Proto-Germanic *TÎWAZ. The Latinized name is TIUS or TIO.

From these given forms, we also have another attribution of god TYR, that is: TYR is also a personification of the Turkish word "TIYOR" (TIER, TIYER, TIYOR, DIER, DIYOR, DIYER, DEYOR) meaning "that which speaks". Another Turkish word for this concept is the Turkish word SÖZ meaning "word, speech". In this context, the Turkish term "TIYOR" (DIYOR) refers to the "mouth of man" which speaks! By another saying, it is the Turkish word "AGUZ" meaning "mouth, tongue, words, speech and language." It is the mouth (i,e,. aguz) that "fathers" or "creates" all words that are used as names to identify all kinds of "creations" and "beings" created by nature and by man. Without the names that TYR man has created to identify each one of us and everything around us that make the environment in which we live, man would not have "speech" or "communications" as we know of presently. Thus, TYR (TIYOR, DIER) is a god and creator in its own right! With this understanding of the name TYR, it can be said that even the concept of GOD and the many names of God known in many forms have been "fathered" by the god TYR (i.e., TUR or SÖZ). This actually describes MAN the "god"!

With this explanation, let us turn to the other terms of the name "TİR (/'t??r/,

Old Norse: TİR [ty?r]) which is from Turkish word "TIER, TIYER, DIYER, DIYOR" meaning "that which speaks".

Germanic languages TEIWS which is from Turkish word "TEYIS, DEYIS" meaning "speaking".

Old English TIW which is from Turkish word "TEYI, DEYI, DEYÜ, DE O" meaning "it is saying, it is word".

Old High German ZIU which is from Turkish word "AUZ, AGUZ" meaning "it is mouth, it is word".

Old High German CYO which is from Turkish word "OKU O" meaning "it is reading, it is saying, it is uttering word".

Proto-Germanic *TÎWAZ which is from Turkish word "TEYIS, DEYIS, DEYÜS" meaning "it is saying, it is word".

The Latin name TIUS which is from Turkish word "TEYIS, DEYIS, DEYÜS" meaning "it is saying, it is word".

The Latin name TIO which is from Turkish word "TE O, DE O" meaning "it is saying, it is word". The Turkish saying "TE O" and "DE O" have been converted into Aryan sayings of TEU and DEO meaning "GOD".

Thus, from all of this, we see that all of these so-called Old Norse, Germanic, Old English, Old High German, Proto-Germanic and Latin forms of the name TYR actually have all been made up from the Turkish language. This clearly indicates that Turkish was the much earlier world-wide spoken language and even possibly the first organized mother/father language (i.e., progenitor) of them all - contrary to denials!


The name HANGATYR as an alternative name of TYR (TUR).

Polat Kaya: Now, after having described the name TYR (TUR) above, I would like to discuss another Nordic name attributed to TYR (TUR) as given in the ancient Norse culture. The above Wikipedia reference also gives us the following information about TYR by saying that: "Tır in origin was a generic noun meaning "god", e.g. Hangatyr, literally, the "god of the hanged", as one of Odin's names, which was probably inherited from Tyr in his role as god of justice."

It must be noted here that the name HANGATYR is a pure Turkish word in every way describing the identity of the God TUR in multiple ways. This we see when we read this word HANGATYR in the following forms by rearranging its letters as:

a) "GAY-HAN-TR", then, we see the Turkish saying "GÖY HAN'TUR" meaning "he is the Lord of Sky", that is, "He is the Sky-God" of Turanians. Gökhan is the name of one of the six sons of Oguz Kagan in Turkish mythology!

b) "GAY-TANRH", then, we see the altered form of the Turkish name "GÖY TANRI" meaning "Sky-God". This again shows that the Norse God TYR (TUR) was none other than the Turkish name of the ancient Turanian "Sky God".

c) "HAGAN-TYR", then, we see the Turkish saying "HAKAN-TUR" meaning "he is Supreme-Ruler, he is Sky-God".

d) "TYR-HAGAN", then, we see the Turkish saying "TUR HAKAN" meaning "Tur the Supreme-Ruler, Tur the Sky-God". In this appellation, TUR HAKAN becomes a title name like the Turkish OGUZ KAGAN is!

e) "TYRG-HANA", then, we see the Turkish saying "TÜRK HANU" meaning "Turk Ruler, Ruler of Turks". Indeed, TYR (TUR) was an ancestral Turk ruler and also An ancestral father figure of the ancient Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples!

f) "TYRAN-AGA", then, we see the Turkish saying "TURAN AGA" meaning "Lord of Turan; Ruler of Turan". Indeed, TYR (TUR) being a God and the Ruler, was not only the religious ruler, but also was the administrative ruler of the ancient Turanian peoples wherever they were on earth! And finally,

g) "AGYANTHR", then, we see the Turkish saying "OGUANTUR" (OKUYANTUR) meaning "he is one who reads, he is one who speaks".

Indeed, TYR (TUR) was an ancestral Turk ruler and also a ruler of ancient Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples!

With all of these descriptions in Turkish of the name HANGATYR, that is, another name for God TYR, I showed that even this name was an ancient Turkish word which was used as a descriptive title name of the Nordic God TYR (TUR)! But, this was also valid and true for all other native Turanians of Asia, Europe, Africa and even the native peoples of Americas who were mostly Asiatic peoples. Of course, this also identifies the so-called TROJANS as another historical Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples in Anatolia. They were the SAKA Turks as identified by the name SCAENGATE (i.e., "SAKA KAPISI" in Turkish) of the city of Troy, in Homer's Iliad epic story! The name TROY is none other than the Hellenized form of the Turkish saying "TUR ÖY" meaning not only "Home of God TUR", but also "home of the Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples!"

Interestingly, the name HANGATYR is also a name of god ODIN. This makes TYR and ODIN one and the same!


About the name NORSE:

The ancient Norwegians are also known as NORSE people. But the word NORSE is a form of the Turkish word "NURCU" meaning "light believers" (Sun believers) that is, "those who worship Sun God and Sun's light". Similarly the name NORWAY is the altered form of the Turkish word "NUR ÖYÜ" meaning "house of Light." This again identifies the ancient Vikings (Norwegians) as Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples, that is, the yellow haired (blond) Kipchak (Kuman) Turks. As the name TURANIAN indicates, all Turkish peoples are TUR peoples and their God was TUR (TANRI). Since ancient Norse people were Turanians, their God TYR (TUR) was also none other than the Turkish sky-God TUR. This again highlights the kinship between the Norse people and the Turanian TUR/TURK/OGUZ people. We can show this kinship relation between the Norse and the Turanian TUR/TURK/OGUZ people noting that the ancient Norse people (i.e., the Vikings) also called themselves ASCOMANNI - which is none other than the Turkish KUMAN (KIPCAK) Turks. The paleness and reddishness of the Nordic people comes from the fact that their ancestors were the Turkish KUMAN (KIPCAK) people who are also pale and yellowish - and for that reason, the Russians call them Polovtsian meaning the yellow people.

Now we understand why the NORSE people had all of these Turkish names and culture for themselves. Because they were Turkish originally. So why are they still being called "Indo-Europeans"? The answer to this question is enlightening. It is due to the artificial Aryanization and Christianization of these Nordic people by the Romans, Greeks and the Christian church. See following links: and Halstatt

"Other chroniclers of Viking history include Adam of Bremen, who wrote "There is much gold here (in Zealand), accumulated by piracy. These pirates, which are called wichingi by their own people, and Ascomanni by our own people, pay tribute to the Danish king" in the fourth volume of his Gesta Hammaburgensis Ecclesiae Pontificum."

In plain English, it says that the so-called "Vikings" were called WICHINGI in one hand and ASCOMANNI in the other. These names are very enlightening in the context that when we decipher them into Turkish, we get the following new information. First I note that the letter W is a replacement for letters UU or VV or YY or UV, UY, VY combinations as needed. In view of this definition and by assuming W = UU, then, the word WICHINGI becomes UUICHINGI. When UUICHINGI is deciphered as "GUNCHI-UII", then, UUICHINGI, (that is, the name WICHINGI), is the altered and restructured form of the Turkish name "GÜNÇI ÜYI" (GÜNCÜ EVI) meaning "House of Sun believers". And that is what these ancient Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples were religiously, in "Scandinavia, before their Turanian names and identity were alienated by Aryanization and Christianization!

Furthermore, the second name ASCOMANNI, deciphered as "AS-COMAN-NI", is the Turkish expression "AS CUMANLI" meaning "One KUMAN People" (one Kipchak people, One Kipchak Turks). Turkish word AS means "one", CUMAN (COMAN) is another name of the KIPCHAK Turks and suffix NI is a form of the Turkish suffix LI meaning "with; from".



About the TIWAZ rune (T-rune):
"The t-rune
is named after Tyr, and was identified with this god; the reconstructed Proto-Germanic name is *Tîwaz. The rune is sometimes also referred to as *Teiwaz, or spelling variants."

Polat Kaya: TYR is known for his great wisdom and courage. And TYR was also the god of justice. The T-rune,
 , is named after TYR and has the shape of an arrow tip. In this context, the Turkish word OK means "arrow" which is an instrument used in warfare. Associating this Turkish word with the name TYR is an indication that TYR was an arrow-using warrior god (a soldier god) representing bravery, courage, heroism and battle as we know from the attributes of TYR (TUR).

Additionally, the Turkish word OK is also the root word of the Turkish word OKU meaning "read". This indicates that TYR (TUR) was a literate god knowing how to read and write. In the above descriptions, I noted and explained that TYR (TUR) was "word, speech, language" and also he was "a literate reading and writing god". The very fact that his name is associated with the T-rune in the ancient Norse writing system is a verification that TYR (TUR) and his people were ancient literate peoples. The Turkish word OKU found in his alphabetic T-rune is also a verification of this fact. It must be noted that the Runic writing system is very much like the Turkish writing system found in Central Asia such as the Gök Türk writing system. All of this also indicates that writing and reading were invented by the Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples who spread it everywhere!

About the word TIWAZ rune (T-rune): As noted above, the letter W is a composite symbol representing letter combinations of UU, VV, YY, UV, UY, VY or O. When W is replaced with UU in the word TIWAZ, this name becomes TIUUAZ. Now, when the word TIUUAZ is deciphered as "AUZTI-U", it reveals itself as the altered and Aryanized form of the Turkish saying "AGUZTI O" meaning "it is the mouth; it is speech; it is the word". Again this shows that the origins of these so called Aryan names (or so-called proto-Germanic or proto-Indo-European) were all from Turkish - contrary to denials and disguises! When we recall from John 1.1 the saying that "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God", now we know from what source it is coming from. That source was the ancient Turanian civilization!

"The name continues on as Norwegian Ty, Swedish Tyr, Danish Tyr, while it remains Tır in Modern Icelandic and Faroese."


The T-rune
or the *Tiwaz rune is said to be named after god Tyr.

Polat Kaya: The Runic letter T being named after TYR (TUR) is very significant in the context that the letter T and the Runic symbol
are very similar. When the wings of the Runic arrow-head symbol are fully opened horizontally, the symbol becomes the Latin (i.e., Etruscan) letter T as used presently. It is also curious that we find T-shaped large temple stones in ancient temples such as the one found in Göbekli Tepe excavations in Turkey. Could it be that these T-shaped stones are representations of god TYR (TUR)? Additionally, the tops of many of the ancient head-stones (MENHIR) erected for dead people found in Asia and Europe are shaped such that they slant at an angle with the tip of the stone. Interestingly, the name MENHIR read as "MEN-HIR" is the the Turkish saying "MEN ER" meaning "I am soldier, I am hero".

Again all of these explanations identify the ancient NORSE people as Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz people!

With best wishes to all,
