Last name origins & meanings:
- Arabic (Egypt and Syria): probably from a personal name based on the Arabic root ḅtr ‘wild’ or ‘proud’.
- Possibly an altered
spelling of French Bitard, from a noun derivative of Middle
French bite (from Old Norse biti ‘tooth’), later ‘piece
of wood’, ‘tiller’, used as a nickname for a surly man, or possibly an
occupational name for a boatman.
