Pronounced in some Arabic dialects g3-breel'.

t Some suppose that GKOPITIKY has the same origin M GODFREY,
signifying " God's peace ;" but, if this be eo, it seems sirange that in
the English, French, Italian, and Danish there should be two forms
eo entirely different In the Danish, Geoffrey is Gat/red, which can
ecarcely by any possibility come from "God's peace," (.Gadsfrcd.
Ir would rather seem to be "joyful peace ; " from a root cognate with
the Anglo-Saxon gal t "wanton," "'merry," and allied to the Danish
gale and Swedish gala, to "crow" or "sing for joy," and also ti
the prefix ^/a in our " gala-day.*'

J From a root cognate with the Anglo-Saxon ear, a "dan" o
"javelin," and Iiard, "firm."

And hence "true," "faithful," because one who was true in
war was true in the most important sense. Miss C. M. YONCE, in
ier "History of Christian Names," gives "spear-maid" aa the
slymological signification of Gertrude,
