Origins Available: Spanish, Welsh


The ancestry of those bearing the name of Bellon is rooted in an ancient Spanish landscape. The process by which hereditary surnames were adopted in Spain is extremely interesting. Surnames evolved during the Middle Ages when people began to assume an extra name to avoid confusion and to further identify themselves. Often they adopted names that were derived from nicknames. Nickname surnames were derived from an eke-name, or added name. They usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name. The name Bellon is a nickname surname for a fair or handsome man. The surname was originally derived from the Latin adjective bellus, which means beautiful.
