|I am researching Blouet, Bluet, Blewitt, Blewett, etc.Without a doubt our name is of French origin and probably originated in Normany, France.We probably went to England with William the Conqueror about 1022, the French name Bloet.Text Books on origins of names; Harrisons Surnames of the United Kingdon; BLEWETT the French Bluet: v under Blew, and BLEWITT the Fr. dim suff -et (CP, Fr. bleuet or bluet, a bluebottle, blue bird).Volumes under Blew and plus the French diminutive suffix et, and other fictions seems to confirm the report that the French meaning was also a blue flower or corn flower, or color of cloth worn at the time.|
BLEW A.-Fr,Teut. of livid complexion blue
M.E. blew, bleu, Fr. bleu O.H. Ger. blao, blue livid: cp O.E. blaw.
The Above interprets the word Blew in French as well as Teutonic, means of livid complexion while the middle England Blew, Bleu, and French Bleu as well as the old Hanover German means blue or lived in the old English spelling Blaw.
