||Etymology of the name IBBOTSON by Inga
According to one source (Story of Surnames by L.G. Pine), Ibbot was a pet form of Isobel, hence "Ibbotson" would be Isobel's son. It's interesting though, that similar or identical surnames often seem to have originated independently from different roots, not unlike convergent evolution.
