garfield M

gara *felþą

This name is Anglo-Saxon in origin, and is from a place that is now "lost" and has disappeared from the maps. The place-name probably grew from a field-name referring to a triangular area of land, in Old English "gara" plus from the Old English ”feld”, from the Proto-Germanic “*felþą”, meaning in a transferred sense, the triangular shape of a spearhead.
