The history of the name Bachelier goes back those Anglo-Saxon tribes that once ruled over Britain. Such a name was given to a knight, who in the exercise of chivalry has won his spurs, but hopes to be elected into some order. However, the nickname batchelor has remained somewhat of a puzzle to etymologists because it implied a sense of partial achievement of a desired goal rather than having a concrete origin. For example, a Bachelor of Arts is a person who has achieved a certain scholastic honor, but who also aspired to a higher degree of master or doctorate. A bachelor in common life was a person who had attained the age of manhood, but had not fulfilled the social relation of entering into matrimony.
