Jisp, in older forms Gispe (1328, 1387), Gyspe (1344), is named after a river with the same name, that had an open connection to the North Sea. Its river name is a composite of 'gis' and 'apa'. The first part means 'gisten', to foam. The second part has the meaning of water, indicating a place where by tidal influences foaming water occurred. River names containing 'apa' have possibly an prehistoric and Celtic origin, dating back to a period where humans did only live in the area in certain periods of the year to herd their cattle.
Jisp is a former whaling village. It used to be an island in the Zuiderzee. It was a separate municipality until 1991, when it merged with Wormer and Wijdewormer to form the new municipality of Wormerland.
