Name Meaning

Irish (Leinster): variant of Dolan 1, or a shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Dúnlaing, a North Leinster name meaning ‘descendant of Dúnlang’, an early personal name. Anglicized forms can be indistinguishable from those of Ó Dubhlainn and Ó Dubhláin.

English: variant of Dolling, probably a nickname from an unrecorded Middle English word, dolling, douling ‘dull fellow’.
