Bottom is often considered to be the common man or to represent the normal man's experience in the way that he embodies so many normal and good traits.  He is one of the mechanicals and his name "bottom" refers to the skein around which yarn is wound, you could of course take this to mean that he is the central piece of the story, the part about which this "yarn" is wound.

He is brave in a way, though he will acknowledge his insecurities.

He makes mistakes and is willing to try to get over them.

He is wise, wise enough at least to understand that trying to go around explaining this dream he has had to anyone else would be unwise and that he ought to take it as it was.

He is also funny and has a wild imagination, wild enough at least that he is the only one of the characters that can see the fairies and interact with them.
