What does this name translate to in English?

Post by Haztek » 17 Nov 2010, 22:39

What does Giobatta (first name) translate to in English. i tried a website that translates names, but it came up with nothing.

Thanks,

To me it looks like a shortened form of GiovanBattista (like John the Baptist). Sometimes this name is also written as GianBattista or even Giambattista).

I see it on the Italian search engine www.virgilio.it as both one word Giobatta and also as two Gio Batta

Thanks to everyone. My wife, after many months and several letters, received her grandmother's birth record in the mail today from Tribogna. She did not know what her great-grandparents names were (Giobatta Basso and Luigia Casagrande)
