Wild boars were common in the British Isles from the earliest times, and became extinct only with the clearing of the large tracts of forest which formerly covered the country; hunting them was a favorite pastime in the Middle Ages.2 French: from Germanic walþu- ‘wood’, ‘forest’; a topographic name for someone who lived in or near a wood, or a habitational name for someone from any of the places named with this word, for example Le Gault in Loir-et-Cher, Marne, and Eure-et-Loir.
