Meaning of Gabrion?
Hi, I've been looking all over for the origin/meaning of the last name Gabrion, but I haven't found anything. Could someone help me out? I think it's of European background (I got a lot of French stuff when I Googled it).Thank you!

When Googled, the variant "Gabrian," means "God's able-bodied one." But since this question was posted so long ago, you probably already found out. Still, I thought I would correspond:)

There was a post concerning GABRIEN on the other board some time ago. The name was made up by the mother of Gabrien - but it actually exists! It's a variant or maybe a misspelling GABRIEL. Now with GABRION it could be the same.Andy ;—)
