Indian (Gujarat and Bombay city): Parsi name, probably from Persian bala ‘high’, ‘exalted’.

In India it is only a given name, but it has come to be used as a family name among South Indians in the U.S. Polish: from a reduced form of the personal name Baltazar. Hungarian: from a pet form of the personal name Balázs, a vernacular form of Blasius.
