Surname Saturday

I decided to do a little research on the meaning of the name Skibbe.  The only information I have located so far is: 
North German: from Sorbian skiba ‘slice of bread’, perhaps a nickname for a poor person.   

I found this information at  Please let me know if anyone else can come up with anything.  My Skibbe's do hide - maybe because no one knows the origin of their surname.
