I knew a girl in school who, every time she got mad or disgusted, she would say "Oh, GAD!" or "Yee-Gads!" My mother said "I don't like that word she's saying all the time - GAD! It's another form of saying GOD and taking God's name in vain!" Then there was a boy at school who would say "Gadfry!" every time he got mad or disgusted. Gad is not a good name for a boy.
Another exclamation for Gad is GAD-ZOOKS!
