Gibbins
MacGibbon / Gibbons / Fitzgibbon of Mayo

 

Origen: Irlandés. The surname Gibbins is derived from the name Gibb, a short form of the Norman personal name Gilbert. This name was originally derived from the name Gislebert, which is comprised of the Germanic elements "gisil," which means "hostage" or "noble youth," and "berht," which means "bright" or "famous." The name features the distinctive Irish patronymic prefix "fitz," which means "son of" in Anglo-French. This is derived from the Old French word "fils," which ultimately comes from the Latin word "filius," both of which mean "son." The Gaelic form of the surname Gibbins is Mac Giobúin. First found in county Mayo where they had been granted land by Strongbow when he invaded Ireland in 1172.
