Two famous bearers include Gilbert Godfrey, known for his tendency to voice animated avian characters, and the Marquis de Lafayette, who had a rather long name (Gilbert being the third), and sometimes went by Gilbert (pronounced zhil-BEAR).

If I may edit my previous comment, Gilbert was Lafayette's final given name, not his third. His full name was Marie-Joseph Paul Yves Roch Gilbert du Motier. He went by Gilbert.

Gilbert is a great name and connects my thoughts to high IQ, funny and patient people. It reminds me of Gilbert Strang, a world-renowned mathematician at MIT. I am an engineer with a PhD. I never saw a professor that can teach math so clearly and funny at his level. He makes math NOT a headache to me! Check this guy's short course intro here at MIT OpenCourseWare: Read a few comments and notice the ratio of likes and dislikes and you will see how he defines the name Gilbert:)
