    Name Meaning

    Americanized form of French Bellanger , via the intermediate altered form Bellangée or Bellangee, the latter still being found in the US, though very rare.

    History: The Ballengees trace their origin to Yves (alias Ives or Evi, Évi) Bellanger, a Huguenot born in Poitou, France, who came to North America in the 1680s from England. He married Christian(e) de la Plaine in Philadelphia, PA, in 1697 and thereafter settled in Little Egg Harbor, NJ. He is listed in the (US) National Huguenot Society's register of qualified Huguenot ancestors (as Ives or Éves or Évi de Bellangée or Bellanger or Bellinger).
