Name Meaning

1 Hungarian: from a short form of Ballabás, variant of the personal name Barnabás ( see Barnaby ).2 Italian: from balla, which in its earliest sense meant ‘dance’ but from the 14th century was used to denote ‘goods packed for transport’, ‘bale’, ‘bundle (of merchandise)’ and was hence probably a metonymic occupational name for a carrier.
