Carmel and Carmella - I've been really interested in Biblical names lately, and this one is one I actually like a lot, though it's actually the name of a place in the Bible, instead of a person.

And I don't think it's a huge jump to conclude that their name came from County Tyrone, Ireland, one of the six historic counties in the country. Tyrone comes from  Tír Eoghain, which means "l
