Name Meaning

German: from a Germanic personal name composed of the elements geb ‘gift’ + hard ‘hardy’, ‘brave’, ‘strong’. A saint of this name was bishop of Constance around the end of the 10th century, and his popularity may have had an influence on the continued use of the personal name into the Middle Ages.
