The origins the old family name Boulenger can be found within medieval France.

However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Boulenger was an occupational name for a baker. Looking back even further, we found the name was originally derived from the Old French word boules, which referred to the balls of dough the baker made and baked into buns and loaves.
