Origin of the name BATTISTA.
Etymology of the name BATTISTA.
Meaning of the baby name BATTISTA.

  

BATTISTA.  Italian form of Baptist (q.v.), meaning "baptizer," from Greek bapto (to dip).

Double names, perhaps, originated in the desire to indicate the individual patron, where there were many saints of similar name, and thus the votaries of the Baptist were christened Gian Battista, or Jean Baptiste, but only called by the second Greek title—most common in Italy—least so in England. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
