Assuming that this is the a with ring over it: G\aa rding should work: 
note the space after "\aa".

Alternatively, "\r{a}" for the a with ring: G\r{a}rding.

I've been using the following latex commands for the three SE letters:

\"{a} \"a \"{A} \"A  the a with two dots over it 
\"{o} \"o \"{O} \"O  the o with two dots over it, as in f\"{o}r (for)
\r{a} \r{A}   (the a with the ring over it)

I've got them from George Gr\"{a}tzer's Short_Course.pdf (at CTAN) from 
his book Math Into LaTeX (p.512).
