My increble grandson is named Barrett. He was born July 10, 2010. I see from the graph that there were just a couple of people in'the whole country (barely shows on'the graph) named Barrett back in'the late 1800's. I adore that name. I love equally the name chosen for my Granddaughter, Bailey. I think they are both very "classy" names. By the way, n't surprisingly, we call him "Bear" and his sister "Bay". How lucky am I to have two incredibly brillant and loving grandchildren❤️

Barrett is my surname. People always had troubles spelling it properly, usually Barratt or Barett. Plus my given name is Kristy-Lee, both of which have a few variants so I spend forever'spelling my name out for people. i've n't met anyone with Barrett as a first name though, I first came across it when looking for a name for my son. First impressions, I'd gather It's a boys name but I can see how it would suit a girl. Barrett's been pretty good to me though, it could be worse.
