One of the most common senses of this word was ‘the blunt-headed bolt of a crossbow’, so it could have been given to an archer or to a maker of iron bars or bolts. Bolt was also used metaphorically for a short, thickset, or tubby person and for someone who was physically upright as a bolt, i.e. ‘as straight as an arrow’.English: variant of Bold 1.Dutch, North German, and Danish: from the ancient Germanic personal name Baldo, a short form of various compound names with the first element bald ‘bold’.
