I like Gareth!

It has a soft sound and a bright meaning!

I'm very fascinated with its Medieval, poetic vibe thanks to the Arthurian Romance! Beautiful!

Gareth is the name of an antagonist in the television series 'The Walking Dead'. He was the insane leader of the group of cannibals known as Terminus.
(Killed off far too quickly in my opinion).

There is something whimsical and medieval about this name. Highly uncommon but not disregarded. It would be nice to see this name as a common name because it's charming in my opinion.

The correct Welsh pronunciation of Gareth is GA RETH. There is no hesitation between the syllables and the R is not rolled as is common in American speech. GA is said like GAP. RETH can be said as RETH or R(UH)TH depending on where in Wales you come from - my experience is that the former is more likely in Welsh speaking regions or the old coal mining valleys and the latter is more likely in the mainly English speaking regions. I was born in Cardiff (the capital) and grew up in Barry (a small seaside town) - both English speaking.

Gareth Bryne, in Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. He is a major character, a wise general. Just an all around cool character.

I'm not crazy about names with the ''th'' ending, but this isn't such a bad name, as long as the guy isn't called Gary. I hate the name Gary, as it makes me think of annoying middle-aged men who find themselves hilarious and very intelligent and strongly believe that anyone who disagrees with them and fails to laugh at their jokes has issues, is a liar and a fake, or just happens to be dumb. So, if the guy is called Gareth, not Gary, go for it.

I am definitely naming my son Gareth. I love this name and I think more people in other countries should use it.

My brother's name is Gareth, and because I live in Wales I know quite a few people with the name. It's popular around here it seems but I'm not sure about elsewhere. I like the name, it's simple but classy, and shows a pride in being Welsh.

I have always liked the name Gareth for a boy. It is such a strong yet gentle name. Not overly used either which is nice.

Gareth Keenan is a fictional character on the BBC comedy The Office, played by Mackenzie Crook. He is obsessed with his past in the Territorial Army, and the fact that he is "team leader" even though this in reality gives him no power in the office.
