You don't have to be an iconic literary character like Mr. D'Arcy to recognize the beauty in this French name. D'Arcy works for both genders and means "dark." Although it's a name that's been around for quite a while, the name came back into the public eye with actress D'Arcy Carden, who played the not-girl robot Janet in The Good Place. As a surname, D'arcy could come from the Irish surname O'Dorchaidhe, from the word dorcha meaning "dark." It might also mean "from Arcy," a village in La Manche, northern France.
