Name Meaning

1 English: in most cases of French origin ( see Duval 1), taken to England by a Huguenot refugee from Rouen. It may also be from a pet form of an Old English female personal name, Dūfe, meaning ‘dove’.2 According to Black, this is also found as a Swedish variant of Scottish McDougall .
