his name is Abraham de Moivre.

The Gaussian distribution is the same as the normal distribution. Sometimes, "Gaussian" is used as in "Gaussian noise" and "Gaussian process." See related links, Interesting that Gauss did not first derive this distribution. That honor goes to de Moivre in 1773.

Johannes de Sacro Bosco in the late 15th Century.

The Gaussian probability density distribution (pdf) is referred to as the Normal distribution. The Gaussian model results in a Gaussian pdf. Interesting, it didn't come from Gauss, but de Moivre, one of the greatest mathematicians of the 18th century, at least in my opinion. See related links.
