Connell Meaning & Etymology

In Ireland, the surname Connell or O'Connell is an Anglicized form of the famous Gaelic clan name O'Conaill, meaning "strong as a wolf," from the Gaelic siol cuin or siol con which translates as "descendant of Connall or Con." The name possibly derives from cú (con) meaning "hound" or "wolf," and gal meaning "valour."
