    Name Meaning

    Americanized form of French Billiou: from the ancient Germanic personal name Biliwulf, composed of the elements bili ‘gentle’ and wulf ‘wolf’. Compare Belyeu and Bilyou .History: The surname Bilyeu is listed along with its original form Billiou and altered forms Balliou and Barlow in the (US) National Huguenot Society's register of qualified Huguenot ancestors. The Huguenot ancestor was Thomas Billiou, who fled from France in the first half of the 17th century (first to Flanders and then to the Netherlands); it was his (grand)son Pierre alias Peter Billiou who left the Netherlands and came with his wife and children to New Amsterdam in New Netherland (now New York City, NY) in 1661.
