My surname is "Machell" and I'm struggling to find out what this means. I've heard that it's in the Doomsday book but haven't been able to verify this. One of my family members is convinced that the origins are French and that it means "bad dogs" i.e. from "mauvais chiens" but I'm struggling to find evidence of this. (The family crest is supposedly of three greyhound-type dogs but again, I'm lacking the evidence.)
Anyone with any ideas or information please help!
