In 1902, scientists began to use the word “noble” to describe gases known for their inactivity and inertness – that is, their inability to combine with other substances. They adopted this word for this use because of its use since the Late Middle Ages to describe precious stones, metals, etc that similarly did not combine with other substances. And the word had this use back then because of its sense of “having admirable properties”, which people had already been using the previous few generations.
