  • "Gilbert is the Anglicised version of the Dutch name "Gysbert" which was derived from "Gieselbert". "Giesel" means "shining or glitttering" and "bert" means "promise" - hence the rather shortened meaning of a "pledge" given on this site. Gilbert actually means a lot more... Despite its unpopularity currently, it's a really great name with lots of meaning." Apr. 9, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "I like the French pronounciation of this name which is "zheel-bear", but I dislike the English and German pronounciation of "gill-bert" (with a hard 'g' as in 'gas'), which I find a rather unattractive pronounciation." May. 17, 2008: Report as inappropriate
