Meaning:Stranger; Exile
Gershom is a masculine name of Hebrew origin that is believed to mean “stranger” or “exile.” According to the Bible, this name was borne by Mose’s firstborn son with Zipporah, making it a fitting choice for those hoping to raise baby in their faith. The meaning of this moniker is thought to be inspired by Mose’s flight from Egypt. Quite a traditional-sounding name, it can be easily softened with the lovely nickname Ger.
