The spelling you have would be the New Testiment of the King James version of the bible. In the original (Old Testiment) bible, the correct spelling is Gerson.In Exodus Chapter 2 ver. 22. The verse goes: and she bore him a son and named him Gerson saying "I am a stranger in a strange land".This does not mean exile. It simply means they are strangers in a foreign land. The meaning means a stranger.
Gershom doesn't mean "exile" - though it's understandable that some think so. Rather, it is Hebrew for "A stranger (ger) there (sham)." [noted -ed]
This name is pronounced ghair-shohm in Hebrew.
