Batu is a common masculine Central Asian name.

In Mongolian, "Batu" means firm/stable. While the name is spelled Batu in Mongol Script (ᠪᠠᠲᠦ), the form Bat (Mongolian: Бат) is used in Mongol Cyrillic.

In Turkish, "Batu" means "Prevailing", and/or "Preponderant". It also connotes "The West" since "Batu" resembles the word "Batı" which means "west" in Turkish.
