Name Meaning

German: metonymic occupational name for a gardener or overseer of a garden or enclosure. Originally the term denoted the keeper of an enclosure for deer, later of a vineyard or smallholding, from Middle High German garte ‘garden, enclosure’. Compare Hofgarten ‘courtyard’, Weingarten ‘vineyard’. Alternatively, it may be a short form of any of various compound names formed with this element, e.g. Swiss German Gart(en)mann, Gartenhauser.

Jewish (Ashkenazic): artificial name from German Garten ‘garden’.
