- English: Variation of names beginning with Jer-
- German: Diminutive of Gerald; Rules by the spear
The name Jerry brings to mind "Tom & Jerry," Jerry Lee Lewis, or Jerry Seinfeld. Point being you're more likely to see Grandpa or Great-Grandpa Jerry than Baby Jerry nowadays. But as they say, what's old is new... so maybe this name will gain popularity again in the future.
