Gareth is a boy's name of Welsh origin encompassing chivalry and modesty. Meaning "gentle," the name finds a fitting namesake in Sir Gareth, one of King Arthurs's noble knights of the round table. Brave as he is virtuous, Sir Gareth sets out to prove himself worthy of knighthood by virtue of his good deeds instead of lineage alone. And so, his adventures begin, wherein he defeats many a foe with ease and captures the heart of Sir Lancelot himself. Famed for his youthfulness and courage, Gareth is a wonderful title to bestow upon a little one about to embark on their own great adventure.
