The Amendment was later repealed.

    Name Meaning

    Welsh: from coch, goch ‘red(-haired)’. The mutated form goch is normal after a personal name. In England, where the surname occurs from Welsh migration, it may have become hereditary in medieval times but this development was probably much later in Wales. Compare Gooch and Couch , which may sometimes derive from the same source.

    English: variant of Goff .

    Irish (especially Waterford and Dublin): shortened form of McGough .
