Bélanger Spelling Variations



French surnames were subject to numerous alterations in spelling because of the various cultural groups that inhabited specific regions. Eventually, each region possessed its own local dialect of the French language. The early development of the French language, however, was also influenced by other languages. For example, Old French was infused with Germanic words and sounds when barbarian tribes invaded and settled in France after the fall of the Roman Empire. Middle French also borrowed heavily from the Italian language during the Renaissance. As a result of these linguistic and cultural influences, the name Bélanger is distinguished by a number of regional variations. The many spelling variations of the name include Belanger, Belangée, Bellanger, Belenger, Baranger, Barranger, Barringer, Bellenger, Bellinguier, Beranger, Beringer, Beringier, Beringuier, Bezanger, Boulanger, Belanget, Bellanget, Belenget, Bellenget, Bellinger and many more.

By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec. By the same year the French Acadian presence in the Maritimes had reached 500. The French founded Lower Canada, thus becoming one of the two great founding nations of Canada.
