EtymologyEdit

Borrowed from Spanish Belice (attested since 1677) as the name of the Belize River, probably ultimately from Mayan/Mopan Maya beliz (muddy water(s)).[1]

The old suggestion that it could be from a corrupted Spanish pronunciation of the surname of Scottish buccaneer Peter Wallace (via pronunciation as *Valis, then *Balise), is now generally considered to be folk etymology; the popularity of the legend persists.
