Etymology of the name GUSTAF.
Meaning of the baby name GUSTAF.

  

GUSTAF.  A variant of Swedish Gozstaf (q.v.), meaning "staff of the Goths."  Also see Gøzstaf.

... Twice has it been endeared to the Swedes; first by Gustaf Vasa, the brave man who delivered the country from the bondage of the union of Calmar, and whose adventures in Dalecarlia, like those of Bruce in Scotland, were more endearing than even his success.  Him the country calls affectionately "Gamle Kong Gosta," and no less was its love and pride in his noble descendant Gustaf Adolf, "the Lion of the North, the bulwark of the Protestant faith," who casts the only gleam of brightness over the dull waste of the Thirty Years' War... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
