There is one Skibo but no one named Szkibo listed in the online Hungarian telephone directory as you can see at http://www.matav.hu/tudakozo/index_e.html. The ancestor of the American Skibos appears to have been one John Skibo from Austria as shown at http://awt.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=dbickford&id=I04114. I agree that the origin of this name is probably Slavic as there are many placenames that begin with Skib- in that area.
