Gert (typically /ˈʒɜrt/) is a mainly masculine given name with some female bearers. English speaking people should note that the "d-sound" as in "jungle" should not be present,only the j should be heard which take some practise. To make a distinction from the German and Dutch name, Gert is almost never pronounced with a g as in those languages and never spelled Geert as in Dutch. The Dutch name has no relation to Gert. Furthermore Geert in Dutch is pronounced with a guttural phonem, non-existent in Nordic languages.In Denmark the name is pronounced "girt" with a clear i-sound to make a distinction from the German and Dutch names. In Norway the name is extremely rare but usually spelled Gjert to mark the j-sound in the pronunciation as in Swedish. It is a short form of the name Gerhard. The name's meaning, derived from the German and Norse translation, is 'the stern javelin warrior'. Since 1993 no-one in Sweden has been baptised as Gert according to the Swedish Bureau of Sensus so the name is becoming increasingly rare. 2010 around 12 000 in Sweden had the name as their first name according to the same source. Gert is most common in Sweden among males over 50 years of age. Around 400 females in Sweden have Gert as their first name.
