The Irish surname McDaniel, also found in Scotland, is an anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Dhomhnuill, a patronymic from the personal name Domhnal. The personal name Domhnal is composed of the ancient Celtic elements domno meaning “world” and val meaning “might, or rule.” In Ireland the name is found mostly in the eastern province of Leinster with high concentrations in counties Louth and Westmeath. The name is first recorded in the United States in 1711 when Darby McDaniel arrived in Virginia.
