This name has a very old history.

There was a general in the wars between the Goths and the Huns, whose name was Gizr the Old (http://www.stavacademy.co.uk/mimir/cultothin.htm chapter 1, paragraph 5).

Gizr was a Goth.

The Vikings kept alive his saga, and I suppose his name was brought to the USA by Scandinavians, or possibly by Anglo Saxons.

Another possibility is that the Gothic tale is a rehashing of a much older saga involving Gizr the Old, which sometimes happens in ancient Scandinavian literature.

For example, the saga of the Battle of Bravoll (http://erikthevermilion.com/norse.music.htm#valhalla), involving King Harald Wartooth (Harald Hilditonn) is actually a retelling of the war between the Aesir and the Vanir.

For details of this, see Viktor Rydberg's 1910 classical analysis and synopsis of seemingly diverse Norse literature, Teutonic Mythology (http://www.boudicca.de/teut.htm).
