The "bright" part of the definition is confirmed by page 40 of the paperback edition of "dictionnaire étymologique des noms de famille et prénoms de France," by Albert Dauzat. c1980, 1987.

The surname BERTHOLET is treated under the main entry BERTOU, which seems to mean brilliant, wolf---although I do not speak French, the language in which the surnames are discussed.
