Gustava is a feminine name derived from Swedish Gustav, from the Old Norse Gautstafr, carrying the definition “staff of the Geats.” This high and mighty appellation has been a favorite of Swedish royalty over the centuries, recalling the ancient tribe of the Geats—one of modern Sweden's founding groups. Old English poetry lovers may recognize the Geats as the bold and battle-worthy tribe Beowulf belonged to. Gustava's romantic rhythm compliments the warrior essence this spirited title has held for centuries.
