Name Meaning

English: nickname from a medieval game called hurlebatte, which took its name from ‘short battes of a cubit long and a halfe, with pykes of yron, and were tied to a line, that when they were throwne, one might plucke them again’ (1565–73). Compare ‘Pleying at The two hande swerd, at swerd and bokelere, and at two pyked staf, at The hurlebatte’ (about 1450 in MED).
