Meaning:Foreign woman
Barbie, a girl's name, is ideal for your little doll. It's a shortened form of Barbara and means "foreign woman" from the Latin term barbarus. That's not going to be anyone's first thought when they hear baby's name, though. Their mind will probably conjure up pictures of a blonde-haired doll with a colorful career history, from astronaut to vet. With a name like Barbie, you can encourage your little one to live life to the fullest and always find the beauty in the world around her. Plus, it has a fun, 50s-style nostalgia that adds even more character.
