The name Hibbens is from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of the Britain and comes from Robert. The name is derived from a pet form of the personal name Robert. In England, in the Middle Ages, rhyming was often used as a device. This practice continued on into the 18th and 19th centuries; cockney, a London dialect of the 19th century, used rhymes almost exclusively to get its point across without the "upper classes" knowing what was being said. A common diminutive of Robert is Rob and Hobb.

The surname Hibbens was first found in Huntingdonshire, where they held a family seat from very early times.

The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Hibbens has been spelled many different ways, including Hobbins, Hobbin, Hobbis, Hobbiss, Hoben and others.
