Share 'Help with non-literal translation of Garde Mal.'
My surname is "Gardemal," which first appears in Northeastern France in the early 1600s.
Members of the family have provided numerous proposed interpretations of the name and its source - "keeper of the ill" for example. I wonder whether the members of the forum might be able to offer any insight?
