Nathaniel Pietro "Nate" Barton is the third child of Clint and Laura Barton. His first name is the masculine form of Natasha, after Natasha Romanoff, while his middle name is a homage to Pietro Maximoff.
Clint and Laura Barton initially believed their third child to be a girl and planned to name the child Natasha, after their friend Natasha Romanoff. However, they discovered that the baby would be a boy and changed the name to Nathaniel. His parents also decided to have Barton's middle name be Pietro after Pietro Maximoff, who sacrificed his life to save Barton's father. In 2015, Barton was born and his parents sent a Skype video of him to Romanoff to show off their newborn.
In 2018, Barton's family was having a picnic on their homestead, during which he played catch with his brother, Cooper. Cooper and his mother both praised Barton's developing throwing skills. After his mother asked him if he wanted mayonnaise or mustard on his hot dog, Barton asked for ketchup instead. Suddenly, he disintegrated from the Snap.
