Meaning & Origins

Biblical name, borne by the greatest of all the kings of Israel, whose history is recounted with great vividness in the first and second books of Samuel and elsewhere. As a boy he killed the giant Philistine Goliath with his slingshot. As king of Judah, and later of all Israel, he expanded the power of the Israelites and established the security of their kingdom. He was also noted as a poet, many of the Psalms being attributed to him. The Hebrew derivation of the name is uncertain; it is said by some to represent a nursery word meaning ‘darling’. It is a very popular Jewish name, but is almost equally common among Gentiles in the English-speaking world. It is particularly common in Wales and Scotland, having been borne by the patron saint of Wales (see Dewi) and by two medieval kings of Scotland.
5th in the U.S.
English: 1. from Old French darnel ‘darnel’, an annual grass, Lolium temulentum, hence perhaps a topographic name. However, according to Reaney, the plant was believed to produce intoxication, so its adoption as a surname may have been for quite different reasons. In the British Isles the name is found chiefly in the central and east Midlands. 2. variant spelling of Darnall.
