Somewhere in one of my files I have a picture of the Barsness farm. The word 'nes' in Norwegian means a headland or promontory. Bars I have a little trouble with. Spelled Bars, I can find no word in my dictionary with that spelling. Bær means berrys. Børs mean exchange, referring to the Exchange (stock). Båre means a stretcher or bier. Bås means a stall or box. My Norwegian language teacher interpreted the name as meaning a hill on the Bar fjord, which must be an inlet from the Sognfjord. The name could mean `the hill on which berries grow'.
