The family history of the ancient name Barron was found in the archives.

Surnames developed a wide number of variants over the centuries. Many different spelling variations of the same name can be traced back to a single original root. Also, when a bearer of a name emigrated from Ireland it was not uncommon that their original name would be incorrectly transcribed in the record books upon arrival at their new location. Some names have dozens of spelling variations. Some Surnames were also altered over the years based on how they sounded phonetically, by their sound, and depending on the prevailing political conditions it may have been advantageous to change a name from one language to another. This was especially so in Ireland where most Gaelic names were 'anglicized' at some stage.

Variants of the name Barron include Barren and Baron. This name in Irish is 'Barun' and it has two distinct origins in Ireland. The first origin of the name is from the MacBarrons who were a branch of the O'Neills. The other main origin is from a branch of the Fitzgeralds who are descended from Maurice, son of Gerald, who accompanied Strongbow in the Anglo-Norman Invasion of 1170. They became a very powerful family with their leaders becoming Earls of Desmond. Garret Mor, eighth Earl of Kildare, was regarded as King of Ireland. Counties Waterford and Kilkenny was the location of the main settlements of the Barron families and the name can still be found in these Counties to this very day.The Barron family crest (or coat of arms) came into existence many centuries ago. The process of creating these coats of arms began as early as the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this, including Ireland. The new more formalized art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own family crest, coat of arms, including Barron descendants.
