Name Meaning

1 English and Scottish: patronymic from the medieval personal name Nel or Neal, Anglo-Scandinavian forms of the Gaelic name Niall ( see Neill ). This was adopted by the Scandinavians in the form Njal and was introduced into northern England and East Anglia by them, rather than being taken directly from Gaelic.2 Americanized spelling of the like-sounding Scandinavian names Nilsen , Nielsen , and Nilsson .
