Etymology[edit]

From Anglo-Norman Gersui, after which disputed. Probably from Old Norse [Term?], compound of Geirs (Geirr's) +‎ ey (island). Also occasionally and historically connected to Latin Caesarea, a common name given to locations conquered by the Romans in honor of Caesar (compare French Césarée). The latter theory still bestows the official Latin translation of the island, as it was known in Roman times.
