  Bar-L is simply the first four letters of Barlinnie.

Now, how did it get the name "Barlinnie"?

At some time in the 1880s, the Barlinnie Farm Estate sold the land for 9750 and building began on the structure.

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

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.
