Name Meaning

Scottish: habitational name from either Peebles on the river Tweed in southeastern Scotland, or from lands so called near Saint Vigeans, Angus. Both placenames are cognate with Welsh pebyll ‘tent, pavilion’, to which the English plural -s has been added.

History: This name has been made famous in upstate NY by Peebles Island, where the Mohawk River empties into the Hudson. The island was acquired by marriage by a Scots Peebles family in the late 18th century.
