Barbara isn't that bad. I would use it in the middle spot.
What about her maiden name?♂ | Samuel ◊ Edward ◊ George ◊ Arthur ◊ Ezra ◊ Dean ◊ Micah ◊ Gideon ◊ Tobias ◊ Jasper
♀ | Helen ◊ Cora ◊ Anne ◊ Jane ◊ Edith ◊ Georgia ◊ Gwen ◊ Catherine ◊ Lydia ◊ Phoebe

Use a Bar- name or a Ba- name. I have a bunch of Mar- named people I wanted to honor but don't like any Mar- names so I picked a Ma- name I love.
I'm also honoring my MIL by using her initials, and my mom by using her favorite color/gem and birthstone as a middle.
If you can't find another way to honor Barbara, the following are nice:
Trying for our first!
If it's a boy: Josiah Walker "Joe"
If it's a girl: Clementine Marvel

Barbara is dated, but I agree it's a very nice name (if we weren't all sick of it, and thus treat it as frumpy). If you want to honor someone, use it as a middle name. Otherwise, besides Babette, I don't think there are variations that would do the trick.
What kinds of names do you like, that might work in the first spot with Barbara as mn?
