    Name Meaning

    English: variant of Bolling .Swedish: habitational name from placenames beginning with Boll- (with several different meanings) + the adjectival suffix -in, a derivative of Latin -in(i)us ‘relating to’. This surname is very rare in Sweden; in North America it may thus (also) be an altered form of the more common Swedish surnames Bolin and Bolling .
