Mcdaniel Surname History


Origins Available: Irish , Scottish


On the Scottish west coast, the Mcdaniel family was born among the ancient Dalriadan clans. Their name comes from the personal name Donald. The name Mcdaniel results from an erroneous Anglicization of the Gaelic name Mac Dhomnuill, which means son of Donald and is normally Anglicized MacDonald. The confusion is a result of the similar sound of the given names Daniel and Donald.


Early Origins of the Mcdaniel family


The surname Mcdaniel was first found in Argyleshire, where they held a family seat from early times.

Migration of the Mcdaniel family to the New World and Oceana


These settlers arrived in North America at a time when the east was burgeoning with prosperous colonies and the expanses of the west were just being opened up. The American War of Independence was also imminent. Some Scots stayed to fight for a new country, while others who remained loyal went north as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of all of them went on to rediscover their heritage in the 20th century through highland games and other patriotic Scottish events. The Mcdaniel were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
