A medieval English name taken from the names Gerard (meaning 'strong spear'), or Gerald (meaning 'defender'), themselves ancient German first names. The fun starts with this little tidbit: curiously, the origin of this name has a corresponding rune, which itself means 'spear' and is transliterated into our modern letter G!
