Name Meaning

English (Jersey and Yorkshire): of Norman origin, a variant of Neal 1 and 2.French (Néel; Normandy): from the Old French personal name Neel, derived either from the Latin name Nigellus (a diminutive of Latin niger ‘black’; compare 3 below), or from the Old Norse name Njáll (see Neal 1), hence a cognate of 1 above. Compare Nel 1.French: from Old French nëel ‘black email’ (from Latin nigellus ‘black’), hence a metonymic occupational name for a jeweler.
