Gershon

Pinterest


Origin: Hebrew

Meaning: a variant form of Gershom, a Hebrew masculine name possibly meaning "exile", though it could also be derived from Hebrew ger sham meaning a "stranger there" though it's also been interpreted as meaning "a sojourner there".

I've also seen it listed as being derived from the Hebrew verb garash meaning "to drive or cast out".

In the Bible, Gershom is the firstborn son of Moses and Zipporah.


Variants:
  • Gershom
