    Name Meaning

    English and Scottish (of Norman origin): habitational name from Beuzeville-la-Giffard in Seine-Maritime, France, named with the ancient Germanic personal name Boso + ville ‘settlement’. The final element has been altered as a result of association with the common placename ending -well ‘spring, stream’. Some instances of Bovill may have the same origin.
