Meaning:To rule with a spear; Strong spear
Garret is a masculine name of Germanic and Old French origins. Also spelled as Garrett, it’s one of the many baptismal names to make an appearance post the Norman Conquest and is believed to be borrowed from the likes of Gerardus, Gerard, and Gerald in 12th century England, so Garret takes on the meaning “to rule with a spear” or “strong spear.” Used as both a given name and surname, this moniker can help foster a sharp mind in baby, while also encouraging them to build a striking personality.
