    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: Indian Dalbir, Renu, Sandeep, Suneet, Tarlok, Vikram.

    English (southern): habitational name from the city of Bath in Somerset, or possibly from Bathe Barton in North Tawton in Devon, or some other minor places so called. The city of Bath is the site of the sumptuous, but in the Middle Ages ruined, Roman baths. The place is named with the dative plural of Old English bæth ‘bath’. In some cases the surname may have originated as a metonymic occupational name for an attendant at a public bath house.

    German: variant of Bathe .
