Name Meaning

(1997: 2280;2007: 4302; 2010: 5770)English: occupational name for a blood-letter, based on the Middle English verb bloden ‘to let blood’. The usual Middle English terms for this occupation were bloodletter or blooder.English: possibly also a nickname from Middle English blode ‘blood’, used as an oath (short for God's blood) but also as a term of address for a blood relative, as in: ‘Now beth nought wroth, my blode, my nece’ (Chaucer). It could also mean ‘child, near relative’ and ‘someone as dear to one as one's own offspring’.
