Beets Name Meaning

Dutch: patronymic from a short form of a Germanic personal name beginning with the element berht ‘bright’, ‘famous’. Dutch: habitational name from a village in Friesland called Beets. English: outside East Anglia, possibly a respelling of Scottish Beats, a variant of Beat. In East Anglia, however, where the name is concentrated, it is of Dutch origin (see 1, 2), as evidenced by the census of 1881. Probably a respelling of German Beetz.
