Meaning:Spear ruler; Brave spear
Gerrard is a brilliant boy’s name of Old German origin, meaning “spear ruler” or “brave spear." Borrowed from the name Gerard, which was first identified in medieval Burgundy, France, it’s the perfect choice if you’re looking for something with a bit of history to it. Gerrard was also the name of a railway town in British Columbia, constructed around 1902. Developments ceased just before the Second World War, turning this 20th-century settlement into an abandoned village. But the name it was known for will hopefully help your mini-historian put it back on the map.
