The De beere surname comes from the Dutch word Dutch "beer," meaning "bear;" and as such was thought to have been a nickname which evolved into a surname. Nicknames were used to describe physical characteristics, behavior, mannerisms, and even favored styles of clothing. In this case, De beere would have been originally used for someone with "bear-like" qualities, perhaps for someone who was big, or strong, like a bear.

De beere Early Origins



The surname De beere was first found in Utrecht in the Netherlands, thought to be the ancestral homeland of the bearers of the prestigious surname.
