Bah! I'm actually one of the few people who liked the ending of Lost but the name Barry doesn't gel well. First of all, you're missing on the obvious and cool name of Esau.

Additionally, and just to show that I pay way too much attention to name etymology, the name Barry didn't exist in antiquity. It's an Irish name and they spoke Latin (and weren't monks). Of course, Jacob's a Jewish name, but it's also existed for millennia.

Personally, I'll just keep calling him Esau/MIB/Smokey.
