Reply to: Barnette Willmann by Regenia

Barnette, according to my name book would be from Old English meaning "From the land that was burned" or perhaps a contraction of the aristocratic title "baronet". The final 'e' probably indicates a Norman French influence.

Willmann, would seem to be related to William which is derived from Old German "Will-helmmet" ..."resolute protection" ...maybe it means "a man who is resolute or determined".
