Origin of the name GAILAVIRA. Etymology of the name GAILAVIRA. Meaning of the baby name GAILAVIRA.

  

GAILAVIRA.  A very old Gothic name, meaning "gallant woman," from Gothic gaila "gallant" and vira "man, human being."

As we have already said, the Gothic contribution to the vocabulary is very slight.  But on the other hand in the 11th century the great majority of proper names is Gothic, e.g. Alfonsus (Hadufonsus), Gundomirus, Recimirus, &c.; or Retila, Fafila, or Elvira, O. Port. Gelvira, Goth. *Gailavira, and scores of others, all proving the great influence of Gothic. (The Encyclopaedia Britannica, Chisholm, 1911)
