English habitation surname derived from the Old English personal name Bosa and the Old English leah "clearing, field". It's also possibly a variant of the French surname Beausoleil meaning "beautiful sun" from the French beau 'beautiful, fair' and soleil 'sun'. Another possibility is that it's a variant of the German surname Bosler, meaning "ruffian", from the High German bôssen 'to hit'.
