Characteristics of Korbin
Etymology & Historical Origin - Korbin
Korbin is an Americanized respelling of Corbin. Corbin is the transferred use of an English surname that originated as a nickname. The epithet originated from the Anglo-Norman word “corb” meaning “crow, raven” to signify a man with shiny black hair or for one with a raucous tone of voice. The personal name developed as Corbinian and the surname first appeared in the 11th century as “Corbun”. The Corbin family Coat of Arms in Guernsey (an island in the English Channel) depicts three black ravens with the motto "Deus pascit corvos" (God feeds the ravens). While we often think of ravens in the macabre sense (thanks to Poe or even Hitchcock), this is far from the truth. For more information on the symbolisms of the crow/raven, please see the name Corbin. As a masculine given name, Corbin is mainly used in the United States and South Australia.
Popularity of the Name Korbin
Americans love to take popular “C” names and stamp them instead with a “K”. Don’t believe us? Consider the following examples: Kaleb, Kameron, Karson, Karter, Kasey, Kash, Kody, Kolby, Kole, Kolton, Konnor and of course Korbin. Corbin started to become a popular name choice for boys in the late 1980s and so Korbin soon followed him on to the charts in 1999. Although Corbin is three-and-a-half-times more commonly used than Korbin, Korbin has done relatively well himself in the past few years. We don’t think this one is likely to climb beyond very low moderation on the charts though. The intentionally misspelled kutesy K names are not a mass market favorite but there are enough parents who prefer the phonetically stronger K to the C (like Kris Kardashian for instance). In any case, we do know that there are several thousand Korbin kindergartners out there collectively saying: “My name is Korbin. That’s Corbin with a K.”
