Name Meaning

English: status name for a young knight or novice at arms, Middle English and Old French bacheler (medieval Latin baccalarius). The word had already been extended to mean ‘(young) unmarried man’ by the 14th century, but it is unlikely that many bearers of the surname derive from the word in that sense.
