Gibbs is a boy’s name of Old English origin.

Baby can look to their namesakes, including Josiah Gibbs, the American scientist who made significant contributions to physics, chemistry, and mathematics, Herschelle Gibbs, the South African cricketer who played all formats of the game for fourteen years, and even the fictional character of Joshamee Gibbs, the longtime comrade and devoted First Mate of Captain Jack Sparrow, for inspiration.
