noble (adj.)early 13c., "illustrious, distinguished, worthy of honor or respect," from O.Fr. noble, from L.nobilis "well known, famous, renowned, of superior birth," earlier gnobilis, lit. "knowable," from gnoscere "to come to know," from PIE root*gno (see know). The prominent Roman families, which were "well known," provided most of the Republic's public officials. Meaning "distinguished by rank, title or birth" is first recorded late 13c. Sense of "having lofty character, having high moral qualities" is from c.1600. A noble gas (1902) is so called for its inactivity or interness; a use of the word that had been applied in M.E. to precious stones, metals, etc., of similar quality (late 14c.), from the sense of "having admirable properties" (c.1300).
