The placename comes from Old French beu bel ‘fair lovely’ + mont ‘hill’. There are also places in England so named under Norman influence in Cumberland Lancashire and Essex the last of which changed its name in the 12th century from Fulepet ‘foul pit’ to Bealmont ‘beautiful hill’; these may also have given rise to the surname. The surname is now widespread throughout England but most common in Yorkshire. Compare Belmont .
