Bator Name Meaning
Hungarian (Bátor) and Polish: nickname from Hungarian bátor ‘bold’ ‘brave’. In some cases the Hungarian name may be from the old secular personal name Bátor (which is from the vocabulary word). The Transylvanian Báthori dynasty of the 16th–17th centuries was named for one of the family’s estates, the village of Bátor. One of its rulers, István Báthori (Stefan Batory in Polish), became king of Poland, hence the spread of the name into Poland.
