Baron is a title (like Duke, Prince, etc). You probably need to speak to Births, Deaths and Marriages for advice. Not sure that anyone here would be able to say either way

But isn't Earl a title too?

It is. I'm not sure how they make distinctions but I believe the idea of the ban is that the names could potentially be misleading. Not sure how exhaustive their list is :shrug:

Slight diversion: I know that the name Cohen has been quite popular and I think I recall some of our Jewish members expressing the wish that it not be used as it has significance within the Jewish faith. How far should restrictions on the use of names associated with a rank or profession be made (e.g.  Bishop, Doctor, Imam)

Called again today. I needed to know lmao..

Turns out Barron, Baryn, or any sort variation is banned in Australia. Can't use it as a first name or middle name.

Call him Brian and tell everyone "it's pronounced Baron"

OK, how about give it to him as his surname?  It's a surname goddamnit.

And maybe the surname as the first or middle or any other name.

So eg Jack Baron known as Baron.

Or Davis Baron if wanted to go that far.

Apparently only Victoria is draconian enough to have a list, but its a rule of thumb all around.

Queen isn't allowed - I wonder if Queenie is?

I have met 2 young children in last few years called Deacon (both born in SA)  - which would seem same as Bishop as far as profession goes - just not as far up.

anyway there are lots of occupation names and they are allowed everywhere - Mason, Cooper etc

I think it is only title names, no profession names, which are banned.

OP - I understand you had your heart set on this name and is disappointing when you cant use a name for whatever reason.

Especially when it obviously is an established name elsewhere, just not in Australia.

If any simple variations like Barron or Baryn are not allowed I would not try to go any further with variations - I think you just get taken further and further from your original  intention that way.

Either find another way to name after the person you admire, eg using his middle name if he has a suitable one - or start from scratch and find a different name altogether.

Call him Ba Ron. Say Ba is pronounced Bay. Why not - everyone else has names as horrible as that.

Except Baron is an established name in other places, like Baron Davis who OP wished to name after.

Not sure point of these sarcastic replies.

I'm surprised they're banned - there are worse names than titles out there. It's probably a tall poppy thing.

Perfectly normal name in Victoria as well until 2 years ago. My old landlord was called Baron. No-one ever commented, we thought nothing of it.

He was a landlord, not a baron (haha). It was just his name.

I can't recall the whole story but someone was trying to call their child Major General or something like that which set the lawmakers off. They overreacted big time, there was backlash but they didn't care.

I was just telling DH about this and he reminded me of a school friend whose 4-5 year old boy is named Baron. In Victoria.
