ORIGIN:
germanic 
NAME ROOT:
*GAIZAZ *þRūþIZ > GERTRUD
MEANING:
This name derives from the Old High German name “Gertrud”, composed of two Ancient Germanic elements: “*gaizaz” (spear, pike, javelin) plus “*þrūþiz” (strength, power, force). Gertrude of Helfta was a German Benedictine, mystic, and theologian. She is recognized as a saint by the Roman Catholic Church, and is inscribed in the General Roman Calendar, for celebration throughout the Latin Rite on November 16. Gertrude was born January 6, 1256, in Eisleben, Thuringia (within the Holy Roman Empire). Gertrude of Aldenberg (~1227–1297) was the daughter of St. Elizabeth of Hungary, and of Louis IV, Landgrave of Thuringia. She became a Premonstratensian canoness regular at the Abbey of Aldenberg, near Wetzlar, in the Diocese of Trier, where she spent much of her life leading the community as its abbess.
