GDB files

.GDB is the standard suffix used for Borland InterBase database file names. It originates back to the days when the Interbase Corporation was still called Groton Database Systems.

This is not compulsory, in fact an Firebird or InterBase database may be named with any suffix. This standardization does however provide a certain conformity, of particular importance if a database is to be administrated long term by numerous people.
