ORIGIN:

NAME ROOT:
(GAIROWALD) (GERHARD)
MEANING:
This is a surname and given name of early medieval English origin. It is one of the many baptismal surnames to have been derived from the popular names of Gerard and Gerald in 12th Century England. Both of these names were taken to Britain by the conquering Normans and are the Old French versions of ancient Germanic personal names. Gerhard is composed of two elements “*gaizaz” (spear, pike, javelin) plus “*harduz / *hardu-” (hard, strong, brave, valiant, powerful one). The surname Ge(e)rdes is a patronymic form, "the son of Ger(har)d", that originated in Frisia around 1800. Gerald is composed of two Germanic elements: “*gaizaz” (spear, pike, javelin) plus “*waldaʐ” (ruler, might, mighty one, power, powerful one). The popularity of Garrett as a first name in the United States has risen sharply in the last century, from number 522 in 1908 to a recent peak in 2000 at number 74.

Color meaning:

Black is the color of the hidden, the secretive and the unknown, creating an air of mystery. It keeps things bottled up inside, hidden from the world. In color psychology the meaning of the color black is protection from external emotional stress. It creates a barrier between itself and the outside world, providing comfort while protecting its emotions and feelings, and hiding its vulnerabilities, insecurities and lack of self-confidence. In times of fear and uncertainty black contains the energy of the threatening unknown. In a positive state, black is seen as a restful emptiness into which anything may emerge and disappear once again. It is also mysterious, providing a sense of potential and possibility.
