Gender Masculine & Feminine
This name is unisex in the Anglosphere, but strictly masculine in the Spanish-speaking world.For men, Dariel is probably a combination of a name that starts with Dar- (such as DARREN and DARÍO) with any biblical name that ends in -iel, such as DANIEL and GABRIEL.For women, the use of this name can probably be traced back to the novel Dariel: a romance of Surrey (1897) written by the English author R. D. Blackmore (1825-1900), in which Dariel is the name of a Caucasian princess. The author might have derived it from TARIEL, a masculine name that is commonly used in the Caucasian country of Georgia.Notable bearers of this name include the American magician and writer Dariel Fitzkee (1898-1977), the Cuban baseball player Dariel Álvarez (b. 1988) and the English actress Dariel Pertwee (b. 1961), daughter of the famous actor Jon Pertwee (1919-1996).
