The name Baddour is from the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name was given to a person who was a coppersmith or a dealer in baterie. The surname Baddour is possibly derived from the Old French word bateor, meaning one who beats, a term which has been applied to a beater of cloth or fuller. The surname may also be a short form of the word orbatour, which means a beater of gold.

The surname Baddour was first found in Berkshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Baddour family name include Beater, Beeter, Beatere, Betere, Batere, Bettere and many more.

Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived.
