Name Meaning

English (Devon, Somerset, and Cornwall): from the Middle English personal name Babb(e), usually no doubt a pet form of the female personal name Barbara (see Barbara ), but possibly in some cases a survival of the Old English personal name Babba, which is found in several placenames, including Babbacombe in Devon and Babington in Somerset.

English (Devon, Somerset, and Cornwall): from Middle English babe ‘infant, young child’, applied as a nickname.

Americanized form of German Bobb or of some other similar (like-sounding) surname.
