Berylla is named after the beryl, a type of mineral which includes emerald and aquamarine. The name beryl (Latin beryllus) derives from Prakrit vēruliya, referring to the city name Vēlūr of India.
Perhaps it's not unintentional that a Hobbit woman with a jewel-name married into the Baggins family, recently made rich by Bilbo's travels. Both Berylla's marriage and name suggest that the Boffins were of a higher class.
