Derived from the English surname of Barron, which can be an occupational surname as well as a patronymic surname. As an occupational surname, it is derived from the noble rank of baron, which is originally of Old French origin. The etymology behind the name of this Old French noble rank is uncertain; it is theorized to ultimately be of either Gaulish (i.e. continental Celtic) or Frankish origin. For the latter, the Frankish word baro meaning "freeman, man" as well as "servant, follower" has often been proposed as a likely source of derivation. Meanwhile, as a patronymic surname, Barron is ultimately derived from Baron, the oblique case of the Old French given name Baro, of which the meaning is uncertain.Known bearers of Barron as a given name include the American business magnate Barron Hilton (b. 1927), his grandson Barron Hilton II (b. 1989) and Barron Trump (b. 2006), the youngest son of the American businessman and president Donald Trump (b. 1946).
