Harry Potter Etymology | Kingsley Shacklebolt
KINGSLEY: It is of Old English origin, and the meaning of Kingsley is “king’s meadow.”
SHACKLEBOLT: “Bolt which passes through the eyes of a shackle.” In heraldry, the shacklebolt symbolizes “victory; one who has taken prisoners or rescued prisoners of war.” Or perhaps “bolting from shackles,” which may have been a foreshadowing of Kingsley fighting his way away from Death Eaters after breaking the Taboo.

“As an actor, there is room for a certain amount of creativity, but you’re always ultimately going to be saying somebody else’s words. I don’t think I’d have the stamina, skill or ability to write a novel, but I’d love to write short stories and poetry, because those are my two passions.” - Daniel Radcliffe
