Name translation request

My first and middle name are both rather common, so figuring them out in other languages isn't too hard, as there are standard forms to work with. My last name, however, I'm having a bit more trouble figuring out.

I'm looking for "Baptist" translated across as many languages as the community cares to cover. I'd been using Wiki article titles such as "John the Baptist" and "Baptist church" to guide my guessing so far, but there's only so much I've been able to figure out on that without having to resort to pure guesswork. If possible, it'd be awesome to know if a translation is based on the meaning of the word, rather than phonetics.

Thanks in advance!
