Halbert Name Meaning
Scottish: of uncertain origin. One suggestion is that it is an occupational name for a soldier who used a halberd (see 2); another is that it may be from a Scandinavian personal name. French: metonymic occupational name for a maker of halberds and similar weapons, from Old French hallebarte ‘halberd’ (ultimately from Middle High German helmbarde, from helm ‘handle’ + barde ‘hatchet’).
