*: Barry \b(ar)-ry\, is pronounced BARE-ee. It is of Irish and Gaelic origin, and its meaning is “fair-haired”. Anglicised form of the Irish Gaelic name Barra, from Bairre (Old Irish), a short form of “fionnbharr”, meaning “fair-haired” (see Finbar).

Also possibly from Bearach (Irish, Gaelic) “spear; sharp, pointed” or after Saint Bairre (seventh century), who founded a monastery that became the city of Cork in Ireland.
