Darnell is a unique gender-neutral name of English origin. It comes from the phrase "derne halh," meaning "hidden nook." In the Middle Ages, this would be used to describe a village concealed by nature. Because of this, Darnell is a name that conjures images of the English countryside's rolling valleys, grassy fields, and leafy oak trees to mind. The origins of the name Darnell can also be attributed to a plant with intoxicating properties grown in Medieval times called darnel.
