Gaspard & Jarrell & Gill
My mother is looking up her herritage (I guess it would be my own, too), and this website has no etymology for the three names. Would someone be so kind as to find the etymology? Thank you in advance.Gaspard

Gaspard - French surname and male given name equivalent to English Casper or Jasper (forenames).
Jarell - probably English and a variant of Gerald, of which there are several. So another patronymic, surname from given name of a male ancestor.
Gill - Northern English, several explanations - I prefer the locative name, meaning "ravine". Others suggest from the Irish Giolla, "servant" (in England?), or a shortened version of some forename, such as Gilbert.
