  Etymology of generic noun :   
Latin, albus = white (Ref. 45335).
  Etymology of specific epithet :   
Named for the pioneer ichthyologist Charles Henry Gilbert who, in 1889, first recorded the metamorphosis of bonefish leptocephali (see Jordan 1905, and Gill 1907) based on specimens collected in the Gulf of California. Given that Gilbert's fish collections were conducted mainly along the shore and coastal waters of the northern Gulf of California (Gilbert 1890) it is highly probable that he collected what we recognize here as A. gilberti (Ref. 88068).
