Now, you may be asking yourself, what is my family’s deal with television? We speak to each other in quotes, each reference a part of our own personal language.
My father had always been adamant that his family came to the United States via Ireland with a little of England thrown in there as well.
It wasn’t until I went to Europe that I discovered “Gibbs” is not as Irish as we thought.
It seems that people would choose how they liked the spelling of the name, especially when it came to naming children. D., there was a group of individuals from ancient Britain (the Picts) whom the Monarchies of Ireland refused permission of Irish land.
This forced the Picts into Scotland, but only on the condition that all of their kings marry an Irish princess.
While Gibbs can also be found in England, my family stems from Scotland, which is where the large majority of Gibbs families are located.
Gibbs can take on many forms, including Gibb, Gilbert, Gibbe, and Gislebert, to name a few.
Television is a major part of my life, a field I have been destined to pursue since the day I was born.
Huxtable’s name sounded as sophisticated as the character herself. Why were only fictional characters from popular sitcoms suggested for my moniker when much more special names exist, say, after a great grandmother or a parent’s childhood friend? Our love of television is something we can all agree upon, even if we don’t always see eye to eye on what to watch each night.
Loving family, great friends, food on the table: those are some real riches. My name, like the family I was born into, was my fate, and fate I could be grateful for.
Besides, a few years later, I learned that Jessica also means “God beholds,” which can easily be expanded to “God beholds a particularly beautiful day to be outside.” Note: Did you know you could win a ,000 scholarship for college or grad school just by registering on College Xpress?
