Bundle is a name of Anglo-Saxon
origin and came from the son of Bond.
This surname of French origin was used in early times as a baptismal name. Baptismal names began to appear as surnames relatively late in the growth of the naming tradition. This is a little surprising, given the popularity of biblical figures in the Christian countries of Europe. Nevertheless, surnames derived from baptismal names grew in popularity during the Middle Ages, and have become one of the foremost sources for surnames.
