The Parnell name is thought to be derived from the medieval female personal name “Peronel, Pernel, Parnell,” which came from the Latin “Petronilla,” or “Petronia,” which was the name of an early Roman martyr. Other sources suggest that the Parnell name is a reference to Pernelle, Normandy, a place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.
