The Gib surname is thought to have evolved in Britain, from the common medieval personal names Gibbon, or Gib. There was also a place named Marsh Gibbon, Buckinghamshire, listed in the Great Domesday Book of 1086, and the surname may have been taken on from the place name.

The surname Gib was first found in Southern England, where a Ralph Gibiun (or Gibbewin) was on record in the Pipe Rolls of Oxfordshire in 1176. Geoffrey Gibewin (Gibwin) was listed several times in Curia Regis Rolls, in Somerset in 1196, in Northamptonshire in 1208, and in Buckinghamshire in 1213.
