    Name Meaning

    (1997: 558;2007: 1004; 2010: 1440)English and Irish (of Norman origin): nickname from Old French bleuet, blouet ‘bluish’, a diminutive of bleu ‘blue’, more specifically ‘pale, pallid, wan’, or ‘fair-haired, golden-haired’. Compare Blew , Blewitt , and Bluett .History: The Norman Ralph Bloet is mentioned in Domesday Book (1086) as lord of the manor of Hinton in Hampshire, recorded in 1246 as Henton Bluet (modern Hinton Blewett). From the late 12th century onward many Anglo-Norman knights acquired estates in Ireland. Ralph's presumed descendants, Thomas and Ralph Bluet, held lands in counties Cork and Limerick before and after 1254, and are ancestors of the modern Irish families named Bluett, Blewett, and Blewitt. In 1850, following the Irish Potato Famine in Ireland (1845–49), Patrick Blewitt, a son of Edward Blewitt of Ballina, County Mayo, migrated to North America, his whole family joining him in 1851 to settle in Scranton PA. Joe Biden (see Biden ), the 46th president of the US, is Edward's great-great-great grandson.
