    Age 1

    Being a second spiritual and religious awakening, like the First Great Awakening, many Churches began to spring up from other denominations. Many people began to rapidly join the Baptist and Methodist congregations. Many converts to these religions believed that the Awakening was the precursor of a new millennial age.

    Name Meaning

    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.

    Native American (Creek): from a translation into English of the Muscogee Creek clan name Echaswvlke (‘Beaver clan’), derived from a word meaning ‘beaver’.
