Origin:German
Meaning:Spear strength; Brave with the spear
Jerard is a boy’s name of German origin. Commonly spelled as Gerard, it’s stitched together from ger meaning “spear” and hart meaning “brave.” Therefore, the moniker can be defined as “spear strength” or “brave with the spear.” This emphasis on the spear is not arbitrary for it was one of the most tactical weapons in olden times, and mastery over it allowed one to be able to take risks. While spears are nowhere to be found in the modern world, unless you count props, Jerard is bound to make your little one brave enough to walk the road not taken.
