The book was called "New Design For Chinese Temples". Later it was hypothesized that Halfpenny made-up the word playfully by adding the Latin ending -ebo, as in videbo ('I shall see') to the word 'gaze' to get the meaning 'I will look.'

Nowadays gazebos have taken many forms. Throughout its colourful journey gazebos have been known as summerhouses, screen houses, kiosks, pavilions, pergolas, arbores, grottos, and pagodas.
