Garrett

bravery
ORIGIN: German
POPULARITY: 574
Garrett came about from two first names, Gerard and Gerald, which were created during the Dark Ages. Those were economic hard times, so to foster a sense of well-being, names that seemed powerful were popular. Gerard, for example, has the prefix “gari,” which means "spear," and the suffix “hard,” which implies bravery. Parents of future sports stars apparently liked the name a lot: Garrett Richards plays for the Los Angeles Angels, and Garrett Hartley most recently played for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Is this baby name a home run for you?
