Other Origin(s):Norse
Meaning:Deer park; Without envy
Darbie, also spelled Darby, is a gender-neutral name of English and Old Norse origin. It first came into use as an Old English surname deriving from the Old Norse elements diur and byr, which together mean “deer park.” Darby may also be an anglicized version of the Irish name Diarmaid, which is thought to mean “without envy.” It was sometimes used as a given name in 18th and 19th-century Ireland, and famously appeared in the film Darby O’Gill and the Little People. However, its similarity to the popular Darcy makes it work equally well as a modern name for boys or girls.
