Baron boy

First name origin & meaning:

German: Nobleman; derived title

First name variations: Barron, Baaron, Barin, Baronie, Baryn, Beron

Last name origins & meanings:

  1. English and French: from the title of nobility, Middle English, Old French baron, barun (of Germanic origin; compare Barnes 2). As a surname it is unlikely to be a status name denoting a person of rank. The great baronial families of Europe had distinctive surnames of their own. Generally, the surname referred to service in a baronial household or was acquired as a nickname by a peasant who had ideas above his station. The title was also awarded to certain freemen of the cities of London and York and of the Cinque Ports. Compare the Scottish form Barron.
  2. English and French: from an Old French personal name Baro (oblique case Baron), or else referred to service in a baronial household or was acquired as a nickname by a peasant who had ideas above his station.
  3. German: status name for a freeman or baron, barūn ‘imperial or church official’, a loan word in Middle High German from Old French (see 1).
  4. Spanish (Barón): from the title barón ‘baron’ (see 1).
  5. Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Bearáin (see Barnes).
  6. Jewish (eastern Ashkenazic): ornamental name meaning ‘baron’, from German, Polish, or Russian. In Israel the surname is often interpreted, by folk etymology, as being from Bar-On ‘son of strength’.
  7. A bearer of the name Baron from the Champagne region of France was documented in Montreal in 1676 with the secondary surname Lupien. Another, from the Angoumois region, is recorded in Boucherville, Quebec, in 1679, and a third bearer, from Normandy, France, was documented in Île d’Orléans in 1698 with the secondary name Le Baron. Secondary surnames Bélair and Lafrenière are also recorded.
