Magyar Angol dictionary defines

Bojt as fringe, tassel and tuft
Bojtos as tufted and tassled

The name also seems to have another variation Böjtös

Couldn't find the meaning of böjtös

The following web site describes "an" occurrence of the name Bojtos in 1635 and states it can be found today.

Csábi helyzetképek

Az 1635-ös török portaösszeírás 28 csábi jobbágynevet közöl. Ezek közt sok olyat találunk – Bojtos, Filip, Balga, Nagy, György, Zatyko –, amely ma is előfordul a faluban.

This is not much help, but I thought I still pass it on.

Just to add to your interesting lesson: the böjt means fast, and the böjtös could be fasty...
