Name Meaning

English (of Norman origin), French, and German: from the personal name Giselbert, composed of the ancient Germanic elements gīsil ‘pledge, hostage, noble youth’ (see Giesel ) + berht ‘bright, famous’. This personal name enjoyed considerable popularity in England during the Middle Ages, partly as a result of the fame of Saint Gilbert of Sempringham (1085–1189), the founder of the only native English monastic order.

Americanized form of one or more similar (like-sounding) Jewish surnames.
