From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    a region; lodging-place, a very ancient town and district in the
    south border of Palestine, which was ruled over by a king named
    Abimelech (Gen. 10:19; 20:1, 2). Abraham sojourned here, and
    perhaps Isaac was born in this place. Both of these patriarchs
    were guilty of the sin of here denying their wives, and both of
    them entered into a treaty with the king before they departed to
    Beersheba (21:23-34; 26). It seems to have been a rich pastoral
    country (2 Chr. 14:12-18). Isaac here reaped an hundred-fold,
    and was blessed of God (Gen. 26:12). The "valley of Gerar" (Gen.
    26:17) was probably the modern Wady el-Jerdr.

From: Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's)

 Gerar, same as Gera
