Ray Holt's business partner was Hispanic and he used to call Ray "Jolt" which is the reverse-anglicized spelling of the word HOLT if written in Spanish. i.e "Jolt" in Spanish is pronounced "holt".

There were about 5000 JOLT units produced, first designed in 1974, far pre-dating the Apple I.

Hear it from Ray Holt from an interview on YouTube:
