Barney is adorable and super nostalgic, but have you met the more distinguished Barnett? This boy's name has English roots and means "burned clearing," perhaps denoting a fresh start! Barnett may also derive from the aristocratic title, baron or baronet, similar to the names Duke and Earl. With such a noble name, your little munchkin will take their legacy very seriously and will quickly grow into their crown. Not to worry, though! With your guidance to ground them, they're sure to rule gracefully. One notable person to share this name is Barnett Newman, one of the world's most influential abstract artists.
