Name Meaning

English: from an unrecorded Middle English bunt ‘something swollen’, related to modern English bunt ‘swelling, bag-like end of a net or sail’, and to Middle English bunting ‘small bird, corn bunting’. The name could have been a nickname given to a plump person. Derivation from Middle English bonte, bunte ‘sieve’ is formally also possible but less likely.English: alternatively, from an unrecorded Middle English personal name Bunt(e), Old English Bunt(a), perhaps derived from the same sense as in 1 above.Dutch (mainly Van de Bunt): habitational name for someone who lived at a place called after its vegetation, which consisted of bunt grass, i.e. a meadow with tufts of a tough kind of grass.
