I heard, about 20 to 50 years ago, that "Daryl" was from a French orgin and that this is the female spelling.

Despite being the name of the actress Daryl Hannah, who can hardly be described as androgynous, let alone masculine, the name definitely sounds masculine to me. It's like Darrell rather than feminine names ending in -yl like Sheryl and Meryl. I wouldn't use this for a girl. It sounds quite harsh on females, and a bit harsh on males as well.

It's not a very pleasant sounding name, the spelling is odd, and its pretty dated. But this should be used for boys only, nothing about it is feminine! And in a way, its Daryl Hannah's fault that Madison is considered a female name... A horrible crime indeed. Haha.

This is an awesome name! It's cool for both genders in my opinion. :D This name makes me think of Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead.

In some Welsh naming books Deryl, spelled with an "e" is used as a feminine name and is pronounced like "Meryl, or Cheryl".
I am of Welsh descent and am named in this fashion. I am told it means "Beloved". In this usage it is no more harsh than the name "Bloedwedd" which is also Welsh and feminine.
