    Name Meaning

    English (of Norman origin): variant of Giffard, either from the Middle English personal name Gifard, derived from an Old French name of this form deriving from ancient Germanic geb- ‘give, gift’ + hard- ‘hardy, brave’, or perhaps sometimes a nickname from Old French gif(f)ard ‘chubby-cheeked, bloated’.
