Name Meaning

English (West Midlands): occupational name for a maker of felloes (wooden wheel rims), from a derivative of Middle English doule, deul, dul ‘felloe’, probably a borrowing of Old French do(u)ele ‘stave (of a barrel)’ and applied to the curved pieces of wood that form the circular rim of a wheel. Modern English dowel ‘headless pin, peg, or bolt’ may be the same word but this sense is not recorded in Middle English.

Irish (Leitrim): shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Dalachair, ‘descendant of Dalachair’, from a personal name possibly meaning ‘lover of assemblies’ (dál). It was also Anglicized as Dallagher.
