A dithematic name formed of the Frisian name element RÊD "advice, council" (ultimately from Germanic rad) and WALD "power, leader, ruler".However, given the extreme rarity of the surname in the Netherlands (especially in this day and age), the given name Rewalt is more likely to be a combination of two existing names the second of which is probably WALTER.
