From the ancient and picturesque Italian region of Venice emerged a variety of distinguished names, including the notable surname Battani 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.

Battani Early Origins



The surname Battani was first found in the northern half of Italy with major families of the name being recorded in Venice and the Veneto region, Bologna, Rimini, and Pisa from the 13th century.
