Name Meaning

1 English (of Norman origin), French, and North German: from Giselbert, a Norman personal name composed of the 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 St. Gilbert of Sempringham ( 1085–1189 ), the founder of the only native English monastic order.2 Jewish (Ashkenazic): Americanized form of one or more like-sounding Jewish surnames.
