FORM OF:

LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > hellenic > greek
ORIGIN:
greek 
NAME ROOT:
BáRBAROS
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
BáRBAROS ‎(βάρβαρος)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Ancient Greek “bárbaros ‎(βάρβαρος)”, meaning “foreign, brutal, ignorant, stutterer, who cannot speak, 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, Saint Barbara was an early Christian saint and martyr. Accounts place her in the 3rd century in Nicomedia, present-site Turkey or in Heliopolis of Phoenicia, present-day Lebanon. Saint Barbara is often portrayed with miniature chains and a tower. Saint Barbara became the patron saint of artillerymen. She is also traditionally the patron of armourers, military engineers, gunsmiths, miners and anyone else who worked with cannon and explosives. She is invoked against thunder and lightning and all accidents arising from explosions of gunpowder.
