The Top 10 Most Famous Women Named Barbara by aihaozhe2


For the past year I've been compiling famous names to list on my website These are noted individuals, but who are the most famous? Today
let's look at famous Barbaras.

The most famous women (based on online chatter) with the first name Barbara are:

10. Barbara Kruger, Artist

9. Barbara Mandrell, Musician

8. Barbara Delinsky, Author

7. Barbara Park, Author (Junie B. Jones series)

6. Barbara Eden, Actress (I Dream of Jeannie)

5. Barbara Stanwyck, Actress

4. Barbara Cartland, Romance Novel Author

3. Barbara Bush, Former First Lady

2. Barbara Boxer, Senator from California

...and the most famous Barbara is...

1. Barbara Walters, Journalist

Not making the top ten list were Barbara Feldon - Actress (Get Smart), Barbara
Hutton - Heiress, Barbara Padilla - Soprano, Barbara Chanteuse - Musician, Barbara
Nitke - Photographer, Barbara Bloom - Writer, and Barbara Woodhouse - Author (No
Bad Dogs).

No surprise that the actresses, authors, and musicians did so well, as they usually have
devoted followings. Nice to see that Barbara Stanwyck, a revered actress from the
golden age of Hollywood, did so well. Also a bit unusual to have the top three spots
for political figures and a journalist, but those are 3 amazing Barbaras.

...and before you ask, Barbra Streisand is spelled Barbra and not Barbara, so she
wasn't eligible for this list. If Barbra Streisand were on this list she would have placed
at number one by a large margin.

I compiled this list by searching for each of the Barbaras on a number of search
engines and ranking them by the number of web pages, discussion forums, photos,
videos, etc that are available online.
