Corbyn is a modern re-spelling of Corbin, which comes from a French surname. The name can have two origins, either denoting a person from Corbon in France, or from corbeau meaning "crow;" a nickname for someone with black hair. As a first name it was fairly rare until the 1980s, where its general use was probably inspired by the actor Corbin Bernsen (1954-) and then later by the character played by Bruce Willis in the 1997 science fiction film The Fifth Element.
