Batanovtsi (Bulgarian: Батановци, pronounced [ˈbatənuftsi]) is a town in western Bulgaria. It is located in Pernik Province and is close to the towns of Radomir and Pernik. The town's name was first attested in a 1564 Bulgarian text: ВИШЄ СЄЛА БАТЄНОВЦИ БЛИЗЬ РЄЦЄ СТРОУМЄ, and several other sources from the 1560s. It is derived from the personal name Batan, probably of Pecheneg or Cuman origin. From 1950 to 1992 it was known as Temelkovo; it was proclaimed a town in 1974.[1]
