Name Meaning

1 English: from Middle English dove, Old English dūfe ‘dove’ (or perhaps occasionally from the Old Norse cognate dúfa), applied as a nickname for a mild and gentle person or as a metonymic occupational name for a keeper of doves. The Old English word was used as a personal name for either sex in the early Middle English period, and the surname at least in part derives from this use.2 Scottish: translation of Mac Calmáin ( see Coleman 1).3 Scottish: variant of Duff .
