Baron

Baron is the name of a title in English nobility, which is of low rank. It comes from Late Latin barō meaning “man, servant; baron” via Frankis *barō (servant; man, warrior) which may be derived from PIE root word *bʰer- (to bear, carry). It’s also possible that Baron may be related to Old English beorn (man, warrior) but that’s just a possibility.

Baron is also a surname, either derived from above for someone who worked at a barony or given as a nickname to a person who was too proud. As a Hebrew surname, it could be derived from bar-on meaning “son of strength”.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European, Hebrew
