About the Gonzalez surname

Gonzalez is a patronymic family name (a family name derived from a father/ancestor) meaning "son of Gonzalo". Gonzalo on the other is derived from a Germanic name of either Gundzhard or Gundisalvus. Gund is for war. Hard is exactly what it means. On the other hand Salvus is supposed to be unknown, though in Latin it means "safe." Does this mean "Son of war strong/hard"? Likewise, does it mean "Son of war safe"?
