Spanish term or phrase:quiel
my friend was given a nick name that sounds like keel, we cant figure out what it means he thought it might be spelled quiel
Explanation: Whenever someone calls your friend by this nickname, you will notice that said person is accompanied by an attack dog. The person is actually telling the dog, "Kill!", and I am grateful that the dog has shown little obedience. I recommend that your friend avoid such company.
Explanation: Quiel is a actually a Spanish surname. A search on Google will yield hundreds of links to persons with the surname of "Quiel". An example of one is given below. How your friend came to acquire "Quiel" as a nickname, however, I am unable to explain, nor do I know what it means.
