The inhabitants of the commune are known as Barnevillais or Barnevillaises.
Barneville-la-Bertran is located north of the Pays d'Auge some 6 km south-west of Honfleur, 15 km south by south-east of Le Havre (across the Seine Estuary) and 10 km north-east of Deauville. Access to the commune is by the D62 from Pennedepie in the north which passes through the north of the commune and continues east to Équemauville. The D279 branches from the D288 south of the commune - just east of Deauville – Normandie Airport - and passes north through the village and joins the D62 just east of the commune. The commune is mostly farmland.
Barneville was called Barnavilla in 1062: from the Scandinavian antroponym Biarn or Barni and the Latin villa giving the meaning "rural domain". Bertran is the family name of the lords of the area in the Middle Ages.
On 6 November 1995 the commune of Barneville officially changed its name to Barneville-la-Bertran.

The municipal council is made up of 11 members including the Mayor and two deputies.
In 2010 the commune had 140 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known from the population censuses conducted in the commune since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of communes with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger communes that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1]

Notes and references
- At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by Law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002 Archived 6 March 2016 at the Wayback Machine, the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" allows, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For communes with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually and the entire territory of these communes is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force on 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
