barron M


The name means “noble man or noble warrior”. The origin of this name is still today quite uncertain. The theories include: 1) From the English (Anglo-Saxon) "beorn", which in turn derives from the Germanic "bernuz" which means “bear”, used in early Germanic law in the sense of homo, especially "man, servant, follower, warrior". In English language the word is never used for "bear", while the Old Norse word is never used for "warrior". 2) Some scholars consider the name of a variant “bairn”, meaning "child, offspring, boy, servant", or from the Germanic “*beron-“, meaning "carrier, servant".
