Meaning of the baby name COLUMKILL.

  

COLUMKILL.  Irish name meaning "Columb of the cell," from Latin Columba, ("dove") and cill "cell."  See Cillín.

... It was from his gentle character that Crimthan, the great and admirable son of the House of Neill, was called Columba, a fitting name for him who was truly a dove of peace to the wild Hebrides.  In Ireland this good man is generally called St. Columkill, St. Columb of the cell, or monastery, because of the numbers of these centres of Christian instruction founded by him... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
