Confusion on the name Darrell

Hi Jennifer,

Babynames.com says the name Darrell is from Airelle, but Airelle isn’t a name. This is confusing to me.  Is “from Airelle” the meaning, or is the one name “from” the other like Laura/Laurel. Either way, should “Airelle” be added to teh database?

Thanks,
Becky

Hi Becky,

Sorry for the confusion. Darrell originally came from the name D’Airelle, which was given to a person (or family) from Airelle, France. That would have been a town or region, however there is no current place name Airelle in France.  On a side note, Airelle is the French word for huckleberry.

We will modify our name listing to clarify.

Sincerely,

Jennifer
