Meaning & Origins

Though in appearance a surname of Norman baronial origin, this name was in fact invented (with the intention of evoking such associations) by the novelist Fanny Burney for the hero, Lord Orville, of her novel Evelina (1778).
1,313th in the U.S.
Scottish and northern English: from Middle English belle ‘bell’, in various applications; most probably a metonymic occupational name for a bell ringer or bell maker, or a topographic name for someone living ‘at the bell’ (as attested by 14th-century forms such as John atte Belle). This indicates either residence by an actual bell (e.g. a town's bell in a bell tower, centrally placed to summon meetings, sound the alarm, etc.) or ‘at the sign of the bell’, i.e. a house or inn sign (although surnames derived from house and inn signs are rare in Scots and English).
65th in the U.S.
