The small studio was the first to reach the Iowa area and was identified as one of 21 stations that were desirable because of coverage area and performance.

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from Barnes (on the Surrey bank of the Thames in London), named with Old English bere-ærn ‘barn, a storehouse for barley and other grain’, or a topographic name or metonymic occupational name for someone who lived by or worked at a barn or barns, from Middle English barn ‘barn, granary’.English: variant of Barne, with excrescent -s, derived from either the Middle English personal name Bern, Barn (based on the Scandinavian personal name Biǫrn or Old English Beorn, both from a word meaning ‘warrior’), or from Middle English barn (Old Norse barn) ‘child’. The latter term is found as a byname for men of the upper classes; it might also have had the meaning ‘young man of a prominent family’, like Middle English child (see Child ).Irish: in Ireland in many cases this is no doubt the English name, but in others it is possibly an Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Bearáin ‘descendant of Bearán’, a byname meaning ‘spear’.
