O'Donnell Genealogy & History

The Irish surname O'Donnell derives from the Gaelic given name "Domhnall", which translates as ruler of the world. Domhall was a descendent of Niall of the Nine Hostages, a legendary figure in Irish and O'Donnell family history. A legend in O'Donnell genealogy is that none other than St. Patrick decreed that the clan shield should carry the cross. The O'Donnell family coat of arms is described as a gold field with an arm and hand holding a cross. The first recording of this surname belongs to Chief of the Clan Godfrey O'Donnell in 1258. One famous member of the O'Donnell family is actress Rosie O'Donnell.
