Meaning:Foreign, strange
A short and chic name offering a retro title for your little one, Babs is breaking the norm as a cute nickname-turned-independent forename. Babs is an adorable form of Barbara, from the Ancient Greek bárbaros, meaning “foreign” and “strange.” Despite its “otherness” meanings, Babs brings good old-fashioned charm to the table with its fame in the 20th century but has stepped to the sidelines since. With vintage names like Betty, Blanche, and Bea on the rise, Babs offers a unique alternative not yet swept up by the nation.
