From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

     (Gr. form Beel'zebul), the name given to Satan, and found only
     in the New Testament (Matt. 10:25; 12:24, 27; Mark 3:22). It is
     probably the same as Baalzebub (q.v.), the god of Ekron, meaning
     "the lord of flies," or, as others think, "the lord of dung," or
     "the dung-god."

From Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's) :

  Beelzebub, same as Baalzebub
