Name Meaning

English (Yorkshire and Durham): from any of the three Middle English personal names of Norman origin: Gerbod (ancient Germanic Gerbodo), Gerbert (ancient Germanic Gerbert, Girbert), and Gerbold (ancient Germanic Gerbald, Gerbold). These three names became confused at an early date. They derive from gēr ‘spear’ + either bod ‘messenger, message, command’, berht ‘bright’, or bald ‘bold, brave’. Gerbold (French Gerbaud) was the name of a 7th-century Christian saint, bishop of Bayeux, as a result of whose cult the personal name was popular among the Normans and introduced by them into England.
