    Name Meaning

    English: from the Middle English personal name Bat(te), probably a pet form of Middle English Bartelmew (see Bartholomew ) or perhaps the rarer Bartram (see Bertram ).English: probably in many cases a variant of Back 2 ‘bat’ (the winged animal), applied as a nickname. The alteration of Middle English bakke to bat is not on record before 1580, but the frequency with which le Bat occurs in medieval documents suggests that this is a likely source of the name. Alternatively, it may be from Middle English bat(te) (Old English batt) ‘cudgel, club, bat’, perhaps for someone of stout appearance or for one who wielded a bat.English: topographic name, of uncertain meaning. That it is a topographic name seems clear from examples such as Walter atte Batte (Somerset 1327), but the meaning of the term is in doubt although it is found in medieval field names.
