The names McDaniel and McDaniels in Ireland are sometimes used as variants of the native Gaelic MacDomhnaill Septs that more often anglicized their name to MacDonnell. These names were also brought to the Province of Ulster by settlers from Scotland, especially during the seventeenth century.
Origen: Irlandés, Escocés. The ancient Dalriadan clans of Scotland spawned the name McDaniel. It is derived from the personal name Donald. The name McDaniel results from an erroneous Anglicization of the Gaelic name Mac Dhomnuill, which means son of Donald and is normally Anglicized MacDonald. The confusion is a result of the similar sound of the given names Daniel and Donald. First found in county Argyle, where they held a family seat from early times.
Variantes: McDaniel, MacDaniel, MacDaniell, MacDanell y otros.
Motto Translated: Always ready.
