Meaning:Spear of strength
Gerta is a girl’s name of Old German origin. Composed of the elements ger and drud, it translates to “spear of strength.” Like Trudy and Gert, it also comes as a cute nickname for medieval Gertrude, known for famous writers, saints, and even a character from Shakespeare's Hamlet. There’s no doubt Gertrude has spent a little more time in the limelight than its spin-offs, but Gerta is just as glorious, and if there’s any way to show the world just how wonderful it is, it’s by choosing it for your newest treasure.
