Garth

Garth m
English and Welsh: from a surname, but often taken to be a contracted form of GARETH (SEE Gareth). As a surname it originated in the north of England, and originally denoted someone who lived beside an enclosure (Old Norse garðr). In modern times its popularity has been influenced by the virile superhero of this name, main character in a long-running strip cartoon in the Daily Mirror newspaper.
