Origins Available: French, Scottish
Nickname surnames were derived from an eke-name, or added name, and generally reflected some physical characteristics or other attribute of the first person that used the name. The Battaile surname derives from the Old French word "bataille" from Latin "battualia" both meaning "battle," and as such was likely originally a nickname for a combative or violent person.

The Battaile 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: Ex bello pax
Motto Translation: Of war and peace
