Girardia /dʒərɑ́rdiə/ (female)
Playfully touted as a feminized version of Gerard, this name actually shares no common ancestry with the classic favourite. Nevertheless, fans of the Old Germanic naming tradition that produced Gerard will surely gravitate toward this tasteful bastardization of the style. This name also bears some similarity to the microscopic parasite, Giardia, a feature that marks it as somewhat edgier than its masculine counterpart. Managing four syllables with its economical use of only eight letters, Girardia is a tight little package that always delivers.
