Meaning & Origins

From Latin, meaning ‘foreign woman’ (a feminine form of barbarus ‘foreign’, from Greek, referring originally to the unintelligible chatter of foreigners, which sounded to the Greek ear like no more than bar-bar). St Barbara has always been one of the most popular saints in the calendar, although there is some doubt whether she ever actually existed. According to legend, she was imprisoned in a tower and later murdered by her father, who was then struck down by a bolt of lightning. Accordingly, she is the patron of architects, stonemasons, and fortifications, and of firework makers, artillerymen, and gunpowder magazines.
18th in the U.S.
French: 1. from the personal name Pa(s)quet, a pet form of Pascal. 2. from Old French pacquet ‘bundle (of faggots)’, a diminutive of paque ‘parcel’, hence a metonymic occupational name for a gatherer or seller of firewood or kindling. In North America, spellings of surnames in -ette are not normally feminine, but reflects the practice of sounding the final -t, which is not the usual practice in European French.
