Does the word barré after a first name mean something in French?

I know my ancestors name is Joseph LaPointe, but on the marriage record of his daughter it lists him as Joseph Barré and is wife as Permine Palmiere. His daughter is listed as Regina LaPointe. Why would that be used to identify him and what does it mean? Is it a reference to title, trade or origin?
