I read a prequel-- The Rise of the Governor-- Spoiler In it you were introduced to 2 brothers--a good guy and a more violent, crazy guy. The crazy guy was killed, and the quiet, nice brother (Brian) took his name and became the Governor. So Brian is his name, if they're following that. I missed what was written on the barn--I'll have to rewatch. I kept waiting for the girls to be killed, or maybe him to kill them when the kid couldn't see him, so he could have her to himself.
