Gerona declares in Canaman Through Four Centuries (2008), the barangay's name came from an ancient Bikol word for a heap of palay accumulated during threshing. One version, according to Jose V. Barrameda in Canaman Through the Centuries (1982) is that it got its name from trunks of Calophyllum inophyllum tree, locally called palo maria, cut into bars or varas in Spanish. Third version as claimed by the locals, Baras is a contraction of "barang." According to Barrameda, the place was the first one glimpsed or discerned from Nueva Caceres, as the result of the massive tree cutting ordered by the colonizers when they attempted to transfer the town center and the original church from Poro to the locality in the 1600s.Before 1780s, Baras was a visita along with Poro, Talidtid and Taculod. It was the gateway of the town to the city of Nueva Caceres. The emergence of these visitas was mainly due to the expansion of farmland around the cabecera. Gerona told, unlike Poro, Baras had a wide and long street made pleasant by numerous plants lining up its stretch. With 80 whole tributes, this visita had 320 inhabitants according to a 1781 report. Aside from the cabezas de barangay, Baras also had an alguacil de bagamundos, Don Sebastian de la Cruz, who was assisted by six bilangos.In 1892, population of Baras was 408.
