GERHARDUS

FORM OF:
gerard, gerhard
LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > germanic > west germanic > german
ORIGIN:
germanic 
NAME ROOT:
*GAIZAZ *HARDUZ / *HARDU- > GERHARD
MEANING:
This name derives from the Old High German name “Gerhard”, composed of two elements “*gaizaz” (spear, pike, javelin) plus “*harduz / *hardu-” (hard, strong, brave, valiant, powerful). The name means “strong with the spear, strong and brave spear-wearer”. The surname Ge(e)rdes is a patronymic form, "son of Ger(har)d", that originated in Friesland around 1800. The name Gerald, while phonetically similar to Gerard, derives from a slightly different set of constituents: “*gaizaz” and “*waldaʐ” meaning “ruler, might, mighty one, power, powerful one”. 1) Saint Gerardo dei Tintori († 1207) was a saint of the Catholic Church, joint patron saint (with Saint John the Baptist) of Monza in Italy, where he is particularly noted as the founder of a hospital. 2) The Blessed Gerhard Hirschfelder (1907–1942), was born in Gladz, Germany and died in Dachau Concentration camp. Gerhard Hirschfeld was German Catholic priest and martyr, beatified by Pope Benedict XVI in 2010. 3) Gerard Sagredo (980–1046), was an Italian Benedictine monk from Venice, who served in the Kingdom of Hungary.
