That's horrible for a name !

Why would she give that cute skirt such a bad name?

Most of the other Diane von Furstenberg garments at Bloomingdale's have decent names. (Well, except for the dress called "Nada." That's not so hot.) I wonder what the story behind "Barren" is.

Come to think of it, shouldn't it be Barrenness?

That's assuming the name was an unfortunate homonym (for Baron/Baroness) created in a spoken brainstorm that slipped past the spell-checker when it was typed up because it's a real word.

Just a theory!

Or maybe it's a homonym for "bare end"? That's what might happen whilst strapping on shoes or picking up a dropped locket.
