FITZGIBBON Family History

Recorded in many forms including the Irish McGibbon and the Norman-Irish Fitzgibbon, as well as the English and sometimes Scottish, Gibben, Gibbin, Giblin, Gibling, Gibbon, and Gubbin, this surname has several possible origins. Firstly if Irish and McGibbon, it originates from the personal name "Fhibin," a diminutive of the Greek name Philip, and almost certainly a Norman introduction after the year 1170 when Strongbow, earl of Pembroke, first invaded Ireland. Secondly for all the other spellings it may have originated from the pre 6th century Germanic personal name Gebwine, from "geba," a gift, and "-wine," a friend, and hence "good friend"...
