Spelling variations of this family name include: Waibel, Waible, Waibl, Weible, Weibel, Wibble, Wyble and many more.

First found in Swabia, where it is believed to have first emerged. The occupational origin of the name makes it likely that several branches of the Weible family emerged independently in the various High German speaking regions of Germany during the Middle Ages. The first known bearer of the name was Burcardus qui Waibil, who was a resident of the village of Lellwangen near Überlingen in 1200. The young Weible family played a major role in the early history of the region, and contributed greatly to the development of medieval Swabian society.
