Increasing DNA results are indicating that some variations of the Dearmond surname are part of a Y chromosome haplogroup subclade known as R1b1b2e which derived from a single dominant male who lived in Northwest Ireland more than 3000 years ago. Included in this group are the clan of Ui Niell, once the high kings of Ireland. The clan of Duibhiorma ruled the northeast penninsula of Donegal. This name evenually evolved as Diarmaid, O'Diermond, Diarmi, Deyarmont, McDermott and Dearmond, to only name a few. Names spelled as DeArmond appear to be merely affectations of French origin which was once fashionable during the late 1700's.
