Balon Family History
Balon Name Meaning
English: from Old French balon ‘bundle’, ‘roll’, ‘pack’, hence a nickname for a small, rotund man or possibly a metonymic occupational name for a carrier of goods and merchandise. French (Bâlon): generally regarded as a habitational name from Baalons in the Ardennes, it may however simply be from balon ‘ball’, ‘roll’ (see 1) or a derivative of Bal.
