From D&D Wiki
Half Gnomes usually come from the new union of a human and gnomish bloodline resulting in either a gnomish looking human or a human looking gnome. Usually not from a long line of mixed blood.

Half Gnomes usually appear like taller more muscular Gnomes or appear as Shorter Leaner Humans.
Half Gnomes are often rare, not coming up a lot in history, as the crossing of bloodlines is not common in the Gnomish culture and is often looked down upon.
Half Gnomes can be found in most places where Humans or Gnomes are accepting of the cross breed. More often in Human cultures. Although the number of Half Gnomes in either society is essentially non existent.
Half Gnome Names
Half Gnomes use either Human or Gnomish naming conventions as if to convey they don't really fit into either society. Similar to Half-Elves, Half Gnomes are given names to represent the other half of their blood. Half Gnomes raised in Human societies are given Gnomish names and those raised in Gnomish Society are often given Human names.
