What is "vulgo Trypes"? or just "Trypes" in the context of the Czech
Republic? I am researching my family tree, and one of the names has a
note underneath it that says "vulgo Trypes", and it's being passed on
to the next generation. We do not have any Greek ancestors and I do
not think it's associated the with food.

Trypes is a List of settlements in the Chios prefecture. 

So it could be that they moved there, or something of that sort.

More than likely however Trypes is a name that they took on as an alias. 

=="A common problem for researchers of Czech lineage is finding double
surnames in records or in results received from Czech Archives and
professional researchers. Men and women can be found to have two
surnames in church and civil records of Czech people. Sometimes the
word "vulgo" appears in-between two surnames, sometimes "or", and
sometimes "known". Vulgo means "alias", or "also known as". In Ivan
Poldauf?s Czech-English Dictionary, vulgo = obsolete colloquialism for
alias, in the vulgar (common) tongue."==
