Donovan

Donovan m
Irish and English: from the Irish surname, Gaelic Ó Donndubháin ‘descendant of Donndubhán’, a personal name composed of the elements donn brown + dubh black, dark, with the addition of the diminutive suffix -án. Its use as a given name dates from the early 1900s. The folk-rock singer Donovan may have had some influence on its increase in popularity in the 1960s. It is now also used by people with no Irish connections.
