Cool Name of the Week: Gareth
Gareth seemed like a decent guy toward the beginning of the Walking Dead season finale—until he imprisoned all of our favorite characters in a train car. But could the name of this head of Terminus, the latest sanctuary our group found, be the perfect choice for your son?
Gareth is a Welsh name, which means “gentle.” I think it reads as a slightly cooler version of the Norse name Garth, and a nice alternative to the much more popular Garrett. And it’s a name that has some pretty cool roots, as it appeared in the tales of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. It’s never been in the top 1000 names here in the U.S., but I think it could be a cool choice for parents who are looking for something unique, but not unheard of.
What do you think of Gareth? Is it an intriguing choice for your son—or does the new hipstery baddie from Walking Dead ruin it for you?
