Hibbard is a surname of ancient Norman origin. It arrived in England with the Norman Conquest of 1066. Hibbard is a name that comes from the Norman personal name Hildebert, which is composed of the Germanic elements hild, which meant battle or strife, and berht, which meant bright or famous. The Norman Conquerors imported a vast number of Norman French personal names into England, which largely replaced traditional Old English personal names among the upper and middle classes.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Hebard, Hebbard, Hebert, Hibard, Hibberd, Hibbart, Hebberd, Hubbard, but most frequently Hibbard. It has been generally accepted that the correct spelling (N.E. Historical Society) is in fact Hibbard.
