Origin of the name EBBA.
Etymology of the name EBBA.
Meaning of the baby name EBBA.

  

EBBA.  f. English.  Pet form of Anglo-Saxon Eadburga (q.v.), meaning "rich protection." 

EBBA.  f. German.  A pet form of Eberhardine and Ebertine (q.v.), meaning "firm wild boar." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).

EBBA.  m. Variant form of Old German Abbo (q.v.), meaning "a man." 

    The name Ebba is doubtless etymologically connected with the old German names Abbo, Abbi, Ebbo, Hebo, Ibba; the Friesic Ebbe, Abbe, Ebbo, Ibo; the Danish Ebbe; and the Saxon Ebba and Ibbe.  Försteurann (who, by the bye, is not a great authority) derives the names Abbe, Abbi, Abbo from the Gothic aba, a man.  I should rather derive them all from a nickname; perhaps from Herbert or Hibbert (her-brecht).  They might even be from Ib, one of the nicknames of Elizabeth. (Notes & Queries, v.6, Jul-Dec, 1870)
