About the Batt surname

Batt Name Meaning English: like Bate, a derivative of the Middle English personal name Batte, a pet form of Bartholomew. English: possibly from a Middle English survival of an Old English personal name or byname Bata, of uncertain origin and meaning, but perhaps akin to batt ‘cudgel’ and so, as a byname, given to a thickset man or a belligerent one. 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.

German: from a medieval personal name (Latin Beatus ‘Blessed’), bestowed in honour of the apostle who was reputed to have brought Christianity to Switzerland and southern Germany.

It's not English; it's Swiss-German.
