Gender: M Meaning of Webb: "weaver" Origin of Webb: English occupational name

This pleasant single-syllable surname might be especially appealing to someone involved with the internet (and who isn't?)--even if some others might see it as a drawback.

Webb is one of those names that was well used at the end of the nineteenth century--it was Number 567 in 1880--and then completely vanished. One possible namesake is the Honky Tonk singer Webb Pierce.

Webb is much more visible as a surname, some notable bearers being actors Jack, Clifton, Chloe and Veronica, jazz musician Chick, and British reformer Beatrice.
