Blewett Family HistoryThis unusual and interesting name comes from an English nickname for someone who habitually wore blue clothes or for someone with blue eyes. The derivation for both is from the Old French "bleuet", a diminutive of "bleu", blue, which in Middle English became "bluet", meaning blue wollen cloth, or "bleut", the cornflower. It was a common practice to create a surname from a nickname in medieval England. The name can be found spelt various ways in the modern idiom, ranging from "Blewitt" and "Blewett" to "Blonet" and "Bluett".
