Jerricho had of course to choose the name Barrons
Good point! You were always associated with where you're from what your occupation was! You were John the blacksmith (or smith or smithy) or James the Cooper....which became John Smith and James Cooper!
Love your location, btw. Makes me think of medieval romance novels!
So....now the question is WHY did he choose Barrons? Zigor, I understand. He was death for hire, the Punisher!
I don't know if this helps, but I immediately started searching when I read this thread and found this.
"The word Barron is of Celtic extraction, and originally synonymous with man in general. It has this meaning in the Salic law, and in the laws of the Lombards; in the English law, the phrase barron and feme is equivalent to man and wife. It was afterward used to denote a man of respectability, a stout or valiant man; and Barrone was also used by the Italians to signify a beggar. From denoting a stout or valiant man, it was employed as a name for a distinguished military leader, who having fought and conquered under some great commander, was afterward rewarded by him with a part of the lands which he had acquired. As a surname, it was originally Le Barron, The Barron. Gaelic, Baran, a barron."
And I forgot to mention, along with that I also found the Barron Family Crest motto:
"Fortuna javat audaces."- Fortune favors the brave.
It might make a difference that his Barrons is with an "s" and the information I found was for Barron and not Barrons. But hopefully this helps.

I wonder if he chose his names for a specific reason. I know 'Jericho' means moon city. Zigor means 'punishment' or 'punisher' or something. I think that name has to do with them being the beast or, "The Damned". One of the definitions of 'damned' is eternal punishment. And when Mac mentions his middle name to Ryodan, he calls it the Omega, or something. I wonder why.
I think Ryodan just means that the letter Z is the last letter in the alphabet, the Omega. So Barrons thinks of himself as the Alpha and the Omega, the be all and end all of everything.

Lol yes had never actually considered this.. I understand Jericho (ancient city and all) but why barrons?
A thought just striked me - maybe becausethey came from a barren land so just put that on his name so he doesnt forget?
