Gershon seems to be a variant form of Gershom, a Hebrew male name possibly meaning “exile” though it could also be derived from Hebrew ger sham meaning “a stranger there”, though it’s also been interpreted as “a sojourner there”. I’ve also seen it listed as being derived from the Hebrew verb garash meaning “to drive or cast out”. Gershon is also a surname originating from the given name.
