So why does my last name have the s instead of Daniel like everybody else?
Richard L Daniel
My father was Leo Clifton Daniel, his father was Thomas Milian Daniel born 1875 Bowie Texas. his mother was a Duke. We don't know when they moved to Purcell Oklahoma. But heard they where Welsh or from Norway. The Daniel goes back before the Alamo, which would make my family, Son, Daughters of the republic of TEXAS.
My grandfather, Robert Daniel lived in GA~ said we were of Scots~Irish descent. His father was John Daniel also of GA .Nearby was a small town named Danielsville
Geneology Theophilus Daniel SC & AL
Excellent geneology on the Internet, Tales of Old. Traces SC to AL move and split with portion of family moving to TX. I am William Daniel, Jr, Theo's father supposedly William Daniel. One web page states he came from Ireland. No confirmation. Any help appreciated

I come from a long line of Daniel, and my grandfather who carried the Daniel name was Irish, his father being Charles Daniel. They came from England in the 1600's, then eventually moved West as the lands opened up in America. My grandfather's family all settled in Missouri eventually, but he being the only one that came to Oklahoma - settled there before it was a state after meeting my grandmother (he was a cattle rustler though, so he traveled throughout Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas). They ended up having a farm in OK until the War.
In Brittany we have the surname Danielou (which literaly means Daniels, -ou being the plural in breton), and those are the old breton-brytonic famillies. And I really don't mind having some scot in me.
reply to T Daniel, I am a Daniel from Oklahoma and have traced the family name back a few generations and have found the same as you. As close as I can tell, from records online, I've traced the family back further to Georgia pine barons in the mid 1800's. I don't pretend to be an expert on the subject, though. Hope this helps.
Hello, My original surname is Danielyan. This is Armenian variation of the name/surname since most of Armenian surnames endings are -yan or -ian.
David in the bible second son was named Daniel. 1Chronicles chapter 3
I too am curious to find out why my maiden name is 1CDaniel 1D, and I being of Mexican/American (long story) descent. I 19ve heard different many stories but they are stories. I have a friend that is looking into it 26 This all came about because he is convinced of my 1CIndian features 1D to which I find interesting. Many of my uncles/aunties either have blue, green, or hazel colored eyes 26 As for the hair, it is either curly, wavy, course, or thick. I know my dad 19s family is from the Coahila area of Mexico 26if that helps anyone. And from my internet readings Coahila was occupied by the Aztec 19s which was conquered by the Spaniards. So 26to all who are interested 26I hope this help. You may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or aahinojos@gmail GOD BLESS!
My surname is Daniel and from the Uk. My surname originated from Romania (Grandfather immigrated from there).
My last name is Daniel and I was born in guerrero, Mexico I dobt have a clue how I got that last name.
Daniel is a Muslim name too. Spelled Danial.
My name is Joshua Daniel, and my last name hails from Spain. I was told that after the Muslims left Spain, my family discarded the Islamic surname that was forced upon them and donned the new surname of Daniel. This was done to reestablish their Christian identity and speak of their faith and thankfulness to God for allowing them to survive as the biblical character had. Later, when generations of Spaniard settlers came to Mexico, an ancestor of mine with the surname "Daniel" had an illegitimate child with a native American in New Spain (present day Mexico), who then became my Grandfather. He was half Spaniard and half Native (Aztec). Students of Central American culture, will tell you that this is where the "Mexican" decent came from; it is a combination of Spanish and Native lineage. Two generations later, I came along and still bear the name Daniel. I'm half Irish and half Mexican. There were Irish who left the Union army to join the Mexican side (during the Mexican-American War) because they were both from strong Roman Catholic cultures, and America was a widely Protestant nation at the time. As a result, history had a brief merge of Irish and Mexican lineage in the south-west. Hence, I'm a red-headed, English and Spanish speaking man of 29 years. If you have any further info on this or just a comment, email me at email@example.com :)

Hi. I only know my G. Grandfather came to the states from Paris. He was Lutheran. Not very tall and had somewhat dark features. I've heard many stories for the origin of the name in France. Some say it began in Wales. Some say it comes from Arnault Daniel. Some are saying from Scotland. Confusing.
