Barbary Name Meaning

English: from a pet form of the female personal name Barbara (see Barbara). Southern French: from a diminutive of Occitan barbari ‘barbarous’, ‘barbarian’. In particular, this word came to denote a Moor or Berber from the Barbary Coast in North Africa, and hence was then applied to a man of swarthy appearance or uncouth habits.
