GRIBBEN Family HistoryThis most interesting surname is of Old Gaelic origin, and is a variant of "Cribben", which itself is the Anglicized form of the Gaelic name "MacRoibin", meaning "son of (mac) Robin", a patronymic from the Anglo-Norman French given name "Robin". Robin itself is composed of "Rob", a diminutive of "Robert", and the hypocoristic suffix "-in". Modern variants of the surname include Cribbins, Crebbin, Gribbin and Gribbon. The surname itself is now widespread in the north-eastern counties of Ulster, and has long been on record in Counties Down and Armagh as "O'Gribben".
