We have employed the ab initio pseudopotential method, within a generalized gradient approximation of the density functional theory, a linear response approach, to determine atomic, elastic and lattice dynamical properties of the BaNbO3. The obtained structural and elastic parameter are in good agreement with previous experimental and theoretical results. The analysis of B/G ratio indicates that BaNbO3 is a ductile material. The calculated lattice dynamical properties compared with phonon spectrum of the similar structures.
