Barnabas Marsh is a minor character in the H. P. Lovecraft story "The Shadow over Innsmouth". He is the grandson of Obed Marsh, the founder of the Esoteric Order of Dagon. During the events of the story, he owns a gold refinery, but he apparently gained the "Innsmouth look" due to his mother being one of the Deep Ones, humanoid creatures who are worshiped by the order.

It's nice sounding, but I do not like the nickname 'Barney'.

Honestly, it sounds pompous and pretentious, has no good nicknames, and can be a mouthful. But I love the name anyway. Something about it just captures my attention in a good way.

Barnabas is a name that seems to speak "17th century pirate" to me, because of the similarity to blunderbuss. I am a mild fan of Dark Shadows (the 1966-71 TV series, not the Johnny Depp film!), so I am familiar with this name.

A short form is the sickening Barney, or the more ambiguous Barnaby. All in all, a mildly usable name.

Definitely a male name (don't get me wrong) I'm just having a hard time picturing it on a normal dude who's straight. I really am.
It's an ugly name regardless of who has it. Thank god it's not popular! Thank. God.

I never cared for the name Barnabas until Barnabas Collins, the most awesome vampire of all time! Also, Barnabas is the full name of Barney Fife from Andy Griffith.

"Son of Encouragement" and "Son of the Prophet" mean essentially the same thing in the New Testament. Prophecy was redefined in the NT as speaking encouragement into someone's life. In the Old Testament, prophecy referred to predicting the future as revealed by the Holy Spirit. So the translation of Barnabas in Acts is accurate.
