True, you probably have had enough of broken spell checks. Hope you get yours fixed soon!

I don't think I was that rude, really. I'm not sure why you decided to take offence. The spelling 'Gerrard' may well be more common, but it isn't the correct one. There are quite a few names that are spelled incorrectly more often than they are correctly, and that doesn't make the wrong spelling right, it only means that the vast majority of people using it don't know how to spell it.

Just my 'oppinion.'

Just my opinion....bear in mind that I am from the States....Don't care much for the first name and really dont like the middle name at all. Black is a cool last name though! Always remember, it is your (both of yours) baby to name. If you like it that is all that really matters. I named my last son a name that no one liked....I agonized over not naming him the name I had picked out because of this. In the end, I named him what I wanted.
Best Wishes!!!

I've only seen it spelled Gerard, but I'm also from the U.S. I do think Gerard Harry Black is a good name.

There are actually good reasons why people should spell names correctly. For one thing, if you use a weird spelling, people will always spell it wrong on forms and such. The person with the name will have to constantly correct people. Plus crazy spellings usually look bad.

I'm not trying to say Gerrard is a bad spelling, by the way. I'm also not saying that legitimate spellings from other languages are bad. I'm talking more about really weird ones like Alyzabeth for Elizabeth.

I like Gerrard. Not too keen on Harry though, but I guess it’s because I love unusual names.

i love the first name Gerrard is neat. Harry makes me think of Harry Potter lol.
The spelling is fine i really like it, its diffrent. . i am from the US as well but i dont see that critisizing the way people spell things in there culture as the WRONG spelling. . Just because people spell names diffrently doesnt mean it is spelled wrong. . as long as you can still prononce it the way its ment to be pronouced whats the problem.. my daughters name is Averylee and its pronounced Avery Lee but my mother said that she would have spelled it Avreylee so they are said the same but spelled diffrent and honestly thats not in any baby book that i have found so there is no right or wrong way to spell it.

I love Gerrard/Gerard, but Harry is too plain in my opinion, I like more uncommon names.
