Gable Name Meaning
Northern English: of uncertain origin, perhaps a habitational name from a minor place named with Old Norse gafl ‘gable’, which was applied to a triangular-shaped hill. The mountain called Great Gable in Cumbria is named in this way. Americanized spelling of German and Jewish Gabel. Possibly an altered spelling of German Göbel (see Goebel).
