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

  

GERHARD.  Old German name meaning "firm spear," from ger "spear" and hard/hart "firm, hard."

... gher or gjer is one of the most frequent of the component parts of names.  Its right and original meaning is a spear, the same as that of the Latin quiris and Keltic coir...
    Gar is quite in modern German, and gher has dropped out of the language, and thus most of the German names commencing with it have been misinterpreted to mean all, but it is impossible to compare them with their northern cousins without tracing the same spear in both. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
