Barbie and her surname

Barbie's real full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts. In the Greta Gerwig-directed film Barbie [2023], Barbie's surname was changed to Handler, after Ruth Handler, creator of Barbie.

Barbie [2023] became the most successful film directed solely by a woman in August, when the Greta Gerwig film surpassed DC superhero movie Wonder Woman [2017], directed by Patty Jenkins. Wonder Woman grossed $822 million in 2017. It has also made more than the three other films Gerwig directed - Nights and Weekends, Lady Bird, and Little Women - combined.
