Why my wife should be happy with her adopted surname.

I stumbled across the above in The Origin of English Surnames whilst taking my lunch break in  Newcastle City Library today. So ‘Belshaw’ is a surviving form of ‘Belcher’ meaning ‘pretty face’, ‘pretty look’ and ‘one of a pleasant, cheerful demeanour’.

Could be worse. :-p
