The De beers 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 beers would have been originally used for someone with "bear-like" qualities, perhaps for someone who was big, or strong, like a bear.
