Other Origin(s):German, Norse
Meaning:Fortress, fort; Vulture; Spear
Gaer is a masculine name of Welsh origin, coming from the word caer. Translating to “fortress” or “fort,” this name can encourage your little one to see their new home as their castle and safe space. Gaer may also come from the German last name Geier and the Old High German word gīr, meaning “vulture.” Even if you’re not a fan of more macabre symbols, the vulture can represent many positive attributes for baby, including patience, renewal, and the circle of life. For a sharper tone, Gaer can also be interpreted as a variant of the Old Norse word geirr, meaning “spear.” With a sharp, edgy aesthetic, baby can wear the name Gaer with pride.
