Gervais is a fantastic boy’s name with plenty of universal appeal to take your tot to the top. The French form of the Latinized German name Gervasius, Gervais takes on the meaning of “spear.” Not only are its definitions pretty cutting-edge, but it also gets its comedic spark from English actor and director Ricky Gervais, known for his dark, sharp-witted humor. If baby Gervais is anything like the comedy star they share a name with, they might turn out quite a crowd-pleaser, too.
