The Battcock Name

Battcock is an English surname and is regularly confused with the much more popular Badcock.  Bat[e]’ is a short form of Bartholomew, a man’s name. ‘Cock’ is a diminutive meaning ‘young’.[i] In this case, Battcock would mean “young Bartholomew”. It would have been applied as a nick name to an individual for the purposes of identifying him or distinguishing him from another Bartholomew in the area or family.
