How do you pronounce race horse Barbaro's name?
Where's the accent? Also, does the name have a meaning?
It probably does have a meaning but sources point to an undistinguished account of him being named for a foxhound. His younger brother is said to be named for another one. "I asked Peter about the origin of his name (someone asked in the comments). Apparently Barbaro is named after a foxhound of Roy Jackson's family. There is a painting of the hounds that includes Barbaro, and apparently his new full brother may be named after another of the hounds." (source below and others)
"It's thought that the foxhound was named after Ermolao Barbaro, a Renaissance era Italian scholar." (source 2) Source(s): http://www.timwoolleyracing.com/news/200...

Barbaro (born April 29, 2003) is an American thoroughbred racehorse. He decisively won the 2006 Kentucky Derby was a heavy favorite in the Preakness Stakes. An injury early in that race ruined his shot at the Triple Crown and ended his racing career.
On May 20, 2006, he suffered an injury shortly after the start of the race, as he fractured three bones in and around the ankle of his right hind leg. On May 21, 2006, he underwent surgery at the New Bolton Center at the University of Pennsylvania for his leg injuries. After initially favorable reports regarding his recovery, in early July complications began to develop. As of July 13, 2006, Barbaro's prognosis was serious but stable.
Bar-Bar-Oh. If you roll the r, it's Bar-Baah-Row. Roughly translated is "equals O" =0! In numerology it would mean an invisible force that has many uses.
