Hi Anneza,

Probably it happened both ways: Gary and Garrett being forms of both Gerard/Gerhard and Gareth.

The most common way to explain the origin of the names Gary and Garrett is via Frisian forms of Gerhard: East- and West Frisian forms of Gerhard are Gerrit, Gerriet, Garrit, Gerret etc. which easily turn into Gary / Garrett in English.

... hope that helps? ;)
