Question why batch is called batch

This is a sorta pointless thread, but I heard that a batch file uses 'multiple programing languages and commands'. So, my theory on why batch files are
called batch files is that they are called batch files because they are a 'batch'
of different programing langauges and commandfs... Does anyone else think this? Or does anyone else know why they are called this?

Default Re: why batch is called batch

Well, this isn't coming from an official source - but I'm pretty sure the reason behind it is because they're designed to execute a batch of commands in one go.
