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.
