Barnes Surname Origin:


 Family Chronicle reflects a British origin of the Barnes surname meaning  "Of the barn (originally 'barley house')."


The Scottish Surnames book by David Dorward states this surname is more common in England and sometimes comes from Barnes in Surrey, England, although unspecified barn in any part of the kingdom could give rise to this surname.  There was also a parish of the name Barnes in Aberdeenshire, Scotland (possibly from Gaelic Bearn).  


The House of Names site reflects the following spelling variations: Barnes, Barns, Barnis, Bernys, Bernes, Berner, and others.
