A Filipino surname meaning "cover, saddle" or "saddle maker". This surname was probably created when a Spanish Surveyor conducts a census during the late 19th century or the early 20th century in Cavinti, Laguna, Philippines and asked a Filipino about his name but unable to complete his name because he lacks a surname but the surveyor notices that the boy is making a saddle so he just wrote 'Pabalat' in his papers.
