- Etymology of the name:
Names ending in "court" come from the Latin "cortis", which indicated a farmyard. The name is applied to the farm itself, around which the village formed. Consequently, the etymology of the word Abaucourt could be considered as such :
- Ab (preposition) = "of a different place"
- Ad (preposition) = "at, towards, around"
- Cortem, Cortis' = "of the court, farm, property"
- Various titles from the 12th century (originated in the archives of the college of Fénétrange) mention Abaucourt and the court and estate of Vitrimont that depended on this village : one or the other belonged to Abbey Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul de Neuwiller-lès-Saverne in Alsace. This it is attested by a papal bull issued by Pope Alexander III in 1178 where the church of Abaucourt was listed as property belonging to the abbey.
