Barna Family History
Barna Name Meaning
Italian: from the ancient Germanic personal name Barna. Italian: possibly from a short form of the personal name Barnaba (see Barnaby 1). Hungarian: from a short form of the personal name Barnabás (see Barnaby 1). Polish (also Slovak and Ukrainian): from a derivative of the personal name Biernat, Polish form of German Bernhard. Possibly from Polish dialect barna, brona ‘harrow’, hence a metonymic occupational name for a peasant who used a harrow.
