The name Tallentire is one of Brittonic origins. The first element tāl means "brow, front, end", and the terminal element *tīr means "land" (Welsh tâl and tir). Unusually, "Tallentire" appears to contain a definite article in the form of -en, leading to the proposition that *[h]ïn was a definite article in the Brittonic of the North, although ï[r] (Welsh y; see Penyghent, Penicuik) is considerably more common. The meaning of the name may be "end of the land".
