Name Meaning

Irish and English: variant of Carrell .

French: from Old French quar(r)el, carrel ‘bolt (for a crossbow)’, hence a metonymic occupational name for a maker of crossbow bolts or figuratively a nickname for a short, stout man (compare English Carrell ). The word also meant ‘paving slab’, and so it could also have been a metonymic occupational name for a street layer.
