This name derives from the Ancient Greek “bárbaros (βάρβαρος),” meaning “foreign, brutal, ignorant, stutterer, who cannot speak.” It is made to imitate the sounds’ βαρ-βαρ-βαρ-βαρ’ spoken by foreigners, hence the Greek idiom “πᾶς μὴ Ἕλλην βάρβαρος” (pas mē Hellēn bárbaros) which literally means “whoever is not Greek is a barbarian.” Should also be noted that the Ancient Greek term” bambaínō (βαμβαίνω) bambalúzdō (βαμβαλύζδω)” and the Sanskrit “balbalā,” meaning “stammering, stuttering.” In Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox tradition, Santa Barbara was an early Christian saint and martyr. The testimonies place her in the 3rd-century to Nicomedia, Turkey’s current seat or Heliopolis of Phoenicia, now Lebanon. Santa Barbara is often portrayed with small chains and a tower. Santa Barbara is the patron saint of gunners. She is also traditionally the patron saint of gunsmiths, military engineers, miners, and anyone else who works with guns and explosives. She is called upon against thunder and lightning and all accidents resulting from gunpowder explosions, whose existence is probably a legend.
