What does barns and noble stand for?

Barnes (Please check your spelling.)

Barnes %26amp; Noble is a major chain of stores across the country. They are mainly known for selling books. The name comes from the original owners. It does not stand for anything other than the last names of the people involved.

From Wikipedia: Barnes %26amp; Noble originated in 1873 when Charles Barnes opened a book-printing business in Wheaton, Illinois. Their first true bookstore was set up by his son, William, in partnership with G. Clifford Noble, in 1917 in New York City.[9] The original bookstore was at 31 West 15th St., and opened during World War I. In 1932, at the height of the Great Depression, the bookstore was moved to its current flagship location on 18th Street and Fifth Avenue.[10What does barns and noble stand for?
