Name Meaning

English: variant of Goate with plural or post-medieval excrescent -s, from Middle English gote, occasionally got(te) ‘watercourse, channel, stream’ (Old English gota), a topographic name denoting someone who lived by a watercourse, or a habitational name from a place so named, such as East Goit (East Yorkshire), Goat Farm in Ringmer (Sussex), or Goat Farm in Streat (Sussex). This element is widely found in minor placenames in northern England, where it survives as dialect gote, goit. Alternatively, Goate may derive from Middle English got(e) ‘goat’ (Old English gāt), either as an occupational name for someone who looked after goats, or as a nickname for someone who resembled a goat in some way; the animal was associated with lascivious behaviour.
