Barnabe is a boy's name of Greek origin. Its meaning, "son of consolation," gives it a rich, historical feel that's lightened by the name's lilting sound. Barnabe is an alternative spelling of Barnaby as well as the Aramaic name Barnabas. Thanks to Charles Dickens' Barnaby Rudge, the name has a subtly literary feel that can encourage your little one to fall in love with stories.
