lavelle Early Origins



The surname lavelle was first found in at Carrickabraghy in North-West Ulster, near the Inishowen peninsula in County Donegal (Irish: Dún na nGall), northwest Ireland in the province of Ulster, sometimes referred to as County Tyrconnel. The surname lavelle is originally from the Gaelic Ó Maolfhábhail (fáball meaning movement, or traveling). Throughout the years, though, it has suffered many Anglicizations and even the first name Paul was originally Lavelle.
