Name Meaning

English:1. most probably from bullward, an occupational name for someone who looked after a bull. 2. alternatively, it may be a nickname for a fraudster, from Old French, Middle English bole ‘fraud’, ‘deceit’ + the pejorative suffix -(h)ard, or a nickname for a rotund man, from a pejorative derivative of Old French boule ‘round’.
