User comments for Daryl (Meaning / History Only)

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

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.
