I've seen several conflicting origins for my first name. It's a common Irish name, supposedly and what i've read is this: - A Derivation of Barruch - A Celtic word meaning "marksman" (I assume Irish.) - Also from a Celtic word meaning "fair hair": "Barry" is derived from "Bairre", a nickname for Fionnbharr ("Fair head") Incidentally, I was named after a Jewish doctor from New York who delivered my brother and I :). -- And they don't give the answers at the end of the test So you can't simply stand there and hope for the best So wake me up at the border when we reach Mexico I'll tell you a secret I don't even know...
