It could be "Bar Reb."  If the father were a rabbi, it should have been Bar HaRav.

the Yiddish name Ber/Baer can in addition to Dov be used for the Hebrew name Yissachar (like Hirsch>Naflali or Leib>Yehuda, based on Yaakov's blessing)

Hello,

Ber  for the  Hebrew name  Dov is a much better explanation if the text is indeed in Yiddish.

It is Ber, Yiddish for bear. The Hebrew would be Dov.

Hello,

 

  בער     may not be a name.  Depending on the vowels, of course.  As is, it means illiterate, ignorant person.
