Nigel derived from a Latinized form of the former name Norman Neel became patronymic as Neel. Indeed, this is an example of scholarly etymology related to the confusion of the old French term neel , black enamel, actually comes from the Latin nigellu (s) and itself derived from the Latin Niger, black, with the former name Neel with similar phonetics. It is brought back into use in the nineteenth century, thanks in part to the novel by Walter Scott The Fortunes of Nigel. Versions of the name are Nial, Niul, Neal, Neill, Nigella, Niall, Neilina. - Bob Jessup Popularity of Nigel
