Barn Axioms

So I was searching for a name for a new business I'm considering and was researching terms related to barns - I thought I'd share some Axioms wikipedia listed..

  • "He couldn't hit the broad side of a barn" is a popular expression for a person having poor aim when throwing an object or when shooting at something.
  • To "lock the barn door after the horse has bolted" implies that one has solved a problem too late to prevent it.
  • "Were you born/raised in a barn?" is an accusation used differently in various parts of the English-speaking world, but most commonly as a reprimand when someone exhibits poor manners by either using ill-mannered language (particularly if related to manure), or leaving doors open.
  • "Your barn door is open" is used as a euphemism to remind someone to zip the fly of their trousers.


  1. Definitely go with "Your Barn Door Is Open"

  2. He's worried about the front barn door and all the animals are going out the back
