    Name Meaning

    English (Devon): perhaps a nickname for someone given to mockery or fooling people, or alternatively for someone who stammered or spoke indistinctly. The source looks like an unrecorded Anglo-Norman French ba(u)bich, bobich, Middle English ba(u)bi(s)ch, bobi(s)ch, with two possible senses. It could be related to Middle English babishen ‘to mock, scoff at’, from the same root as Old French baubir, bober ‘to mock, deride, make fun of’, and Anglo-Norman French baubeur ‘false, insincere person’ (compare Middle English bobben ‘to deride, make a fool of’). Alternatively, the surname might be related to Anglo-Norman French balbuisir (from Latin balbutire) ‘to stammer, speak indistinctly’, with the same root as Old French bauber, Anglo-Norman French baber ‘to stammer’, and Anglo-Norman French baube ‘stammering’ (from Latin balbus) and baubeur ‘stammerer’.

    In some cases also an Americanized form of Serbian Babić (see Babic ).
