Other Origin(s):German
Meaning:Woods, forest
Holt is a boy's name of English and Germain origin, meaning "woods" or "forest." Always in our hearts, this strong, vintage pick is once again rising from obscurity. Holt was all the rage during the early 1900s, but mainly as a surname. Some notable people that share the name include the ruggedly handsome Jack Holt, a Western and silent film actor, and his modern counterpart from Fight Club, Holt McCallany. You may also think of the legendary Captain Raymond Holt of the sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine, whose comical stoic nature adds a touch of flair and authority to the name.
