BEALS Family History

This interesting name has two possible origins, the first of which is from the Norman nickname for a handsome man, in Old French 'bel or bele'. The word was also used as a personal name for women, meaning 'fair', 'beautiful', and the surname could therefore be derived from either in the plural forms, 'Beals or Beales', the name is patronymic, and means 'son of Bel'. The second possible origin for the modern surname is locational, from either of the two places called 'Beal' in Northumberland and in West Yorkshire.
