Origins of surname
A variant of Beranger, this name is derived from the Germanic personal name Berengari, from beren = bear and gari = spear. The name is found in a wide variety of spellings through France, but is not particularly common in those regions close to Jersey - Brittany and Normandy.
The name first appears in Jersey church records with the baptism of five children of Pierre and Madelaine Carrell in St Brelade. All baptism records are found in that parish's registers.
