Bolkly (Egyptian Arabic: بولكلي‎‎) is a neighbourhood in Alexandria, Egypt. The neighborhood is officially named Bulkeley, written as Bolkly. In speech however, the name has been modified over generations into a more pronounceable one for the local tongue, "Bokla" (Egyptian Arabic: بٌكلى‎‎). The name could possibly be connected to the historic Baucalis district.
