Other Origin(s):Scottish
Meaning:New hall
Newel is a boy’s name of English origin, meaning “new hall," that dates back to medieval Dumfriesshire, Scotland, where it was first found. Newel has quite a universal appeal, too, as it's known for several religious leaders of 19th-century America, like Newel Knight and Newel K. Whitney. It’s also the name of a quiet town tucked away in Germany’s Trier-Saarburg district. Wherever your own little Newel decides to plant their roots, it'll hopefully be somewhere not too far from where your heart is!
