    Name Meaning

    (1997: 7774;2007: 16090; 2010: 21640)English: habitational name from Belvoir in Leicestershire, pronounced beever (/bi:və/), so named with Old French beu, bel ‘fair, lovely’ + veïr, voir ‘to see’, i.e. a place with a fine view. This name may also be derived from any of several places in France called Beauvoir, for example in Manche, Somme, and Seine-Maritime, all of which have the same etymology as above.English: nickname from Middle English bever, bevre (Old English beofor) ‘beaver’, possibly referring to a hard worker, or from some other fancied resemblance to the animal. The existence of patronymic forms such as Beaverson suggest that this may also have been a personal name.
