Meaning:Eminent; Remarkable
Howell is a boy’s name of Welsh origin. Taken from the Old Welsh name Hywel, Howell means “eminent” or “remarkable.” And while the name Howell can be taken as a twist on Hywel, its connections to the many kings of Wales and Brittany—like Hywel Dda or Hywel the Great—are crystal clear. Howell is also a popular surname in the UK, with Youtuber and comedian Daniel Howell from the iconic Dan and Phil duo being one of its many bearers.
