The oreegin o the toun's name is o Norse, or Auld Inglis, wi the seicont element "wick" either comin frae "vik" meanin a bay, or a "wic" meanin a settlement. The first element is an aa ambiguous, an mey refer tae either barley (baer) or the heidland ("bar") which cuts athort the Tweed estuary. Anither interpretation claims "Corn Farm" as the meanin o Berik.
