Dalziel History

The most popular derivation of the name Dalziel is the gaelic ‘dal-gheail’ meaning ‘white meadow’, referring to the colour of the local soil. There are so many different forms of this name that over 200 have been recorded.
The name originates in Lanarkshire, although it can also be found in Shetland, being named for the island of Yell (the two are most likely not related).
