How did barbados get its name?
The word "barbados" is Portuguese for "bearded (ones)" -- similar to the Spanish word "barbudos" -- but it is not conclusively known what the term was referring to. It could be the roots of the 'bearded fig' trees, or the natives, or even the seafoam around the islands. The name was first applied to the island as early as 1519.
