    ‘Geert’ is a Dutch forename of Germanic origin, equivalent to German Gerd and English Gerry.

The name''s common female equivalent is ''Geertje''.

    The pronunciation of the name varies slightly, depending on whether or not the speaker uses a variety of Dutch which distinguishes between the phonemes /x/ and /ɣ/. While speakers of most northern varieties of Dutch, which do not distinguish between the two phonemes, will pronounce the name as or , speakers of southern varieties will generally pronounce it as .

    Although ''Geert'' can be used as a name in its own right, it is often the given name of persons who are formally called Gerard or Gerardus. The latter name refers usually to Saint Gerard of Toul or Saint Gerard Majella.
