GERVAS.  Old German name meaning  "war-courageous," from ger "spear, sword; war," and vas/was "courageous."  Also in use by the English.  In Latin, Gervasius

    There are more names derived from the spear than from the sword.  One of the most common of all roots is Ang.-Sax. gâr, Old Norse geir, Old Sax. and Old Fries. gêr.  Förstemann thinks that ger, avidus, and garo, paratus, may mix up with this root.  The Old Frankish forms char and car, of har, army, are also often difficult to separate...
... (Was, vas, courageous) Old German Gervas—Eng. Jervis—French Gervais. (The Teutonic Name-system &c., Ferguson, 1864).
