I don't know if "put" here is related to put options.

Yes, it refers to a put option. It is like buying an ordinary put on a bond, giving you (the investor) the right to sell at a fixed price (here, face value) by a given date (here, maturity).
Bonus fact: A callable bond, similarly, is one for which the investor has effectively written a call option, giving the borrower the right to buy back the bond at a fixed price. This option is likely to be exercised if interest rates fall.
