From the ancient and picturesque Italian region of Venice emerged a variety of distinguished names, including the notable surname Battaggia which was derived from the Italian word "Battaglia," or "battle." This surname was a nickname for a warrior or professional private soldier, which then became a surname. There are also places named Battalgia, and no doubt the surname also arose describing one who came from one of these places. There are villages named Battaglia in Udine, Padova, Teramo, Trapani, and Salerno amongst other regions.
