Alteration of Berengar, possibly influenced by French bel, beau meaning "fine, beautiful, great" and anger "anger" (thus "righteous anger"). This was the name of a Knight of the Round Table in Thomas Malory's 15th-century compilation of Arthurian legends 'Le Morte d'Arthur', in which Bellangere avenges the deaths of his father and grandfather by killing King Mark of Cornwall.
