Perhaps a topographic name from Italian ebbio, a type of plant known as danewort in English (genus Sambucus), itself derived from Latin ebullus; alternatively, it may have been a habitational name for a person from a minor place named with this word. A notable bearer was the Italian political philosopher and occultist Julius Evola (1898-1974), who was born to a minor aristocratic family of Sicilian origin.
