    Name Meaning

    English (Devon): descriptive nickname for a giant or a large man, from Middle English golias ‘giant’, from the Hebrew personal name Golyat Goliath. There is unlikely to be any connection with the English vocabulary word gully (from Old French goulet ‘neck of a bottle’), which is not attested in this sense before the 17th century.
