Name Meaning

A place of the same name in Hertfordshire has as its first element an unattested Old English byname Be(o)ra (from bera ‘bear’).2 English: metonymic occupational name for a grower or seller of barley, from Old English bærlic, originally an adjective derivative of bær ‘barley’ (a byform of bere).3 Altered spelling of South German Behrle or Beerli, from a Germanic personal name formed with Old High German bero ‘bear’ (the animal).
