Gender: M Meaning of Barry: "spear" Origin of Barry: Irish

This Anglicized form of Bearach or short form of Finbarr predates the Gary-Cary tight black pants/white socks era and , with its Irish roots well hidden, shows no signs of being part of the Gaelic name revival. Modern parents would probably prefer to go with Barrett.
