Morri Arty Says:


I love this name. It's like Donald, except more sophisticated and unique. My grandfather was named this, but he was teased in high-school because Donnell sounded "fancy," so he changed it to Donald when he was older. I love the name Donald as well, but Donnell is beautiful to me, so I wish he had kept it. I don't think anyone would be teased for carrying this name now, though, as that was a good many years ago.
