Dougal is a boy's name of Scottish origin. Epic and mighty, this rarer form of Dougall can be traced back to the 8th century when invading Danish Vikings landed in the country. It was initially a nickname for the dark-haired outlanders and earned the meaning "dark stranger" or "black." Over the years, its root form, Dubhghall or Dùghall, became a surname and later a key clan in Scottish history. Whether the stories are familiar or brand new to you, this name will inspire your wee munchkin to explore their roots and take you along for the ride!
