Many of the most common last names in Belgium are of French origin, as the country was once part of the Duchy of Burgundy. Other common Belgian last names are derived from Dutch, German, or Latin roots.

Some of the most popular French-origin family names in Belgium include Dupont, Lefebvre, and Delvaux. These names are all derived from personal characteristics or occupations. For example, Dupont is a variation of the name "du Ponce," meaning "of the ponce" (a type of horse). Lefebvre is derived from the Old French word "lefevre," meaning "smith" or "metalworker." Delvaux comes from the Latin word "delicatus," meaning "dainty" or "refined."

Other common Belgian last names have Dutch, German, or Latin roots. Van den Berg is a Dutch-origin name meaning "from the mountain." This name may have originally been given to someone who lived near a prominent hill or mountain.

De Vries is a Dutch-origin name meaning "the ferryman." This name likely referred to someone who operated a ferry crossing over a river.

Schmidt is a German-origin name meaning "smith" or "metalworker." This name is likely derived from the same root as the French-origin name Lefebvre. Garcia is a Spanish-origin name meaning "bear."
