Great masculine name and not one that is used much. Takes a strong woman to pull off this name.

This is probably a coincidence, but I chuckle knowing that the protagonist of Final Fantasy 7 is called Cloud "Strife" while his teammate is the one called "Barrett".

I feel like I am the only girl named Barrett, lol. I mean it's different, I just wish my name was more feminine.

When I hear this name, the first person that comes to mind is Syd Barrett. His real name was Roger Keith Barrett, and he was in the band Pink Floyd. He was originally the lead singer and guitarist for the band, but sadly he suffered from drug abuse, and the drugs he took made him go mad. They made him leave the band after recording just two albums with him. Many Pink Floyd songs written after this relate to him somehow, especially the album Wish You Were Here (all the songs are about him). He died on July 7, 2006. I mostly remember him as the genius who threw it away.

I don't really like this name, reminds me of Barret (the thing you wear in your hair) and also I don't like the meaning of this name either.
