Surname meaning for "Darnell"

from Old French darnel ‘darnel’, an annual grass, Lolium temulentum, hence perhaps a topographic name. However, according to Reaney, the plant was believed to produce intoxication, so its adoption as a surname may have been for quite different reasons. In the British Isles the name is found chiefly in the central and east Midlands.
