Can anyone shed light on this question? Bar-L sounds to my 1950s upbringing as a nod towards cowboy films and in particular, those with ranches and cattle herds. This may not be even close, however.

Bad guys are lazy, why say Barlinnie when you can just shorten it to Bar l which sounds more menacing.
