English Dictionary: Barabbas by the DICT Development Group
2 results for Barabbas
From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:
      i.e., son of Abba or of a father, a notorious robber whom Pilate
      proposed to condemn to death instead of Jesus, whom he wished to
      release, in accordance with the Roman custom (John 18:40; Mark
      15:7; Luke 23:19). But the Jews were so bent on the death of
      Jesus that they demanded that Barabbas should be pardoned (Matt.
      27:16-26; Acts 3:14). This Pilate did.

From Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's) [hitchcock]:
   Barabbas, son of shame, confusion
