I don't think it's usable mainly due to the strong negative response it gets from most people. Otherwise, I love it and wish that sort of name were usable nowadays. Like you, I like many other medieval names that have a similar, rather hard sound to the ear nowadays. Hildegarde to me is so lovely. I'm loving your suggestion of Ehrengarde and also Leongarde, though I could see that for a woman, actually.
Here are some more for you:
Adelgard or Edelgard
You might also consider names ending in gar or gert or gart or ger, since you like -garde names:
Aww! Yay! Another awesome name we agree on!
I saw Edgard when I was looking for my list of -garde names and I like it, but I don't like that it's so close to Edgar, which I see you also suggested.
Edgar is one of those names I've never really been able to like even though I really want to. It reminds me of Edgar Allen Poe and for some reason that association turns me off.
As for Bogart, this is close to another name I thought of. After seeing Beauregard, I thought of Beaugard, which I also like. Your suggestion of Jaegar intrigues me. Right now, it's kinda iffy for me, but I think if I say it long enough, it'll grow on me.
