Din dicționarul The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (27 SEP 03) :

  nibble
       
           /nib'l/ (US "nybble", by analogy with "bite" -> "byte")
          Half a byte.  Since a byte is nearly always eight bits, a
          nibble is nearly always four bits (and can therefore be
          represented by one hex digit).
       
          Other size nibbles have existed, for example the BBC
          Microcomputer disk file system used eleven bit sector numbers
          which were described as one byte (eight bits) and a nibble
          (three bits).
       
          Compare crumb, tayste, dynner; see also bit, nickle,
          deckle.
       
          The spelling "nybble" is uncommon in Commonwealth Hackish as
          British orthography suggests the pronunciation /ni:'bl/.
