BELLER Family HistoryRecorded in many forms including Belle, Bellay, Bellee, Beller, Bellie, Belly, Bellye, and the very rare and possibly extinct Bellyman this is a surname of conectural English origins. It is almost certainly ultimately of early French origin from the words "bel or belle", both meaning good or fair, and also used as a personal name and later a surname in the British Isles, after the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. The suffix endings where they occur such as -ie, or -y or even -ee, relate to endearment diminutives or patronymics, and translate as "Little Belle" or probably "son of Bell(e)." The surname also exists as Belson or Bellson, from the same origins, although Bellyman may be a cognate form of Bellman, meaning either a town crier, or possibly "friend or servant of Bell".
