Meaning & History

Short form of Jabrail, Jabril and other arabized forms of Gabriel that start with Jab-. It can also be a short form of Jambul in some cases, as is seen with the Georgian politician Jambul "Jaba" Kokhreidze (b. 1966) and the Georgian soccer player Jambul "Jaba" Jighauri (b. 1992).

This name is now almost exclusively used as an independent name, since Jabrail and the like are extremely rare in Georgia these days.
