Abate Name Meaning

Italian: from abate ‘priest’ (from Late Latin abbas ‘priest’, genitive abbatis). The application is uncertain: it could be a nickname, an occupational name for the servant of a priest, or denote an (illegitimate) son of a priest. Jewish (from Italy): either a name indicating descent from a high priest, a calque on Hebrew Cohen, or an occupational name for a rabbi.
