Battle Name Meaning
English and Scottish (of Norman origin): habitational name from a place named as having been the site of a battle, from Old French bataille ‘battle’. In some cases, this may be Battle in Sussex, site of the Battle of Hastings, but this name was taken to Scotland by a family from Umfreville, France, in the early 13th century.
