The Batgate surname is thought to derive from a place name in West Lothian, Scotland.

Batgate Early Origins



The surname Batgate was first found in West Lothian, Scotland, at Bathgate a town 5 miles (8 km) west of Livingston. People have lived in the area since about 3500 B C. The town was confirmed in a charter by King Malcolm IV of Scotland (1141-1165) and has been listed as Bathchet (1160), Bathket (1250) and Bathgetum (1316) and later in the 15th century as both Bathgat and Bathcat.

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Vive ut vivas
Motto Translation: Live that you may live for ever
