FYI (you may already know this)

Totally beside the point, but two of my best friends' mother* is from Barbados, and the colloquial name for people from Barbados is "Basian." One of them suggested that the likely linguistic path was "Barbadian"->"Barbasian"->"Basian."

*They're twins. They have the same mother. :)

Thank you. I hadn't actually needed the term so I found myself confused.

Fascinating. I don't think I've encountered the term before. Thanks for sharing.
