Gareth (given name)
Gareth [ˈɡarɛθ] is a given name of uncertain meaning. It first appeared in this form in Thomas Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur, in which it belonged to Sir Gareth, a brother of Gawain and one of the Knights of the Round Table. Malory based it on Gahariet, a name found in French Arthurian texts; it may have a Welsh origin, perhaps connected with the name Geraint or the word gwaredd, meaning "gentleness". It is typically considered a Welsh name today.
