The long and noble heritage behind the name of Balliol first began in medieval France. Many names derived from Old French roots arrived in England and Scotland after the Norman Conquest of the 11th century. The surname Balliol was originally derived from one of numerous place names in France such as Bailleul-en-Vimeu in Picardy, or Bailleul in Northern France. These place names are generally thought to come from the Old French word "baille," which meant "fortification."
