bib meaning in Etymology Dictionary

linen used across breast while eating, 1570s, from verb bibben "to take in" (belated 14c.), imitative of lip sounds, or else from Latin bibere (see imbibe), but tough now to express whether it is because it absolutely was used while ingesting or because it "absorbed" spills.


bib - German to English
