A myth about the origins of the Barnacle goose is that the Barnacle Geese emerge fully formed from the common Barnacle (Cirripedia). The migration patterns of may birds including the Barnacle Geese were not fully known until the late 19th or early 20th centuries. Early medieval accounts of migration often drew on popular myths to explain why some birds seemed to disappear and then reappear during the year. The origins of the myth go back to the 2nd century BCE. The myth was popularised in the early 12th century by Gerald of Wales. Subsequent descriptions in medieval Bestiaries caused may scholars and historians to repeat and enlarge on the myth.
