[Thin Blue Line]

The parish of Barnes in Aberdeenshire derives its name from the Gaelic word "bearn", meaning `gap'. As a surname, Barnes is found also in Dundee and the central belt of Scotland.

The surname is found in both Scotland and in England, but is more common in England. It is often derived from a significant barn in the local region.
