Origin of the name SIBULLA.
Etymology of the name SIBULLA.
Meaning of the baby name SIBULLA.

  

SIBULLA.  From old Italian sabius, or sabus, meaning "a wise old woman."  Greek Sibyl.  Cornish Sibilley.  French Sibille.

    The Sibyls were beings peculiar to Roman mythology, prophetesses half human, half divine, living to a great age, but not immortal.  Etymologists used to interpret their name as coming from the Greek Ζεύς and βουλή (Zeus' councils), but it is far more satisfactorily explained as coming from sabius, or sabus, an old Italian, but not a Latin word, which lives still in the vernacular Sabio, thus making Sibulla signify a wise old woman. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
