I have two suggestions,


Explanation:
it all depends on the context however:
1. It could be "Jawwal" meaning: a male person who "roams, moves, or travels around".
2. It could also be a misspelt word for "Shawwal" which is the Arabic month شوال which is the tenth month in the Arabic calendar.
If you could provide more text it would be more helpful.
