    Name Meaning

    English and Irish (of Norman origin): probably a nickname for a quarrelsome person, from Old French barat, Middle English bar(r)at, bar(r)et(te) ‘trouble, distress’, later ‘deception, fraud; contention, strife’. Through Norman settlement it also became common in Ireland, where it was Gaelicized as Baróid (Munster) and Baréid (Connacht).
