Origin and Meaning

1) From the Nordic adjective nobel = 'noble', 'illustrious', 'distinguished', 'worthy of honour or respect' [1] (derived via Old French noble = 'of noble bearing or birth' from Latin nobilis = 'famous, 'well-known', 'renowned', 'superior', splendid', 'high-born', earlier *gnobilis = 'knowable' - see also Noble)

2) Transferred use of the Swedish surname [1], which is short form of Nobelius, a Latinised form of the place name Nöbbelöv deriving from Old Danish *nybyli = 'settlement' [2]
