GABRIEL Family History

Recorded in over forty diferent spelling forms inlcluding Gabriel, Gaber, Gavriel, Gabrieli, Gabion, Gabrielsen, Gavrilichev, Gabarkiewicz, and Gawrysiak, this is a "Crusader" surname. Found in most European countries but specifically Great Britain, France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, The Netherlands, Russia, The Ukraine, Poland, and Scandanavia, it derives from the ancient Hebrew personal name "Gavriel" meaning "God has given me strength". According to the New Testament of the Bible, it was the Archangel Gabriel who announced to the Virgin Mary that she was to become the Mother of Jesus. Given this sort of provenance it was hardly surprising that the name achieved great popularity during the religious revival of the Middle Ages...
