Bellamy comes from a French surname meaning “fair/fine friend” or “handsome/beautiful friend” which comes from French beau/belle (handsome, fine attractive) via Latin bellus (beautiful, pretty, handsome) via PIE duenos/duonos(good) which is the diminutive of *dew- (to show favor, revere); and ami (friend) via Latin amicus (friend), a derivative of amare (to love) which could be derived from a PIE root word. It likely originated as a nickname for someone who was a fine friend.
