Name Meaning

English: from the Middle English personal name Tubbe, apparently derived from either Old Norse Tubbi or Old English Tubba (an unattested form, evidence for which is found in the place name Tubney, Berkshire). There is no evidence to support the suggestion that it might be a metonymic occupational name or nickname from Middle English tub ‘barrel’.
