Name Meaning


possibly a nickname from Old French gandie ‘pretence, trick, trickery’.

alternatively, perhaps from a shortened form of the Old French personal name Gandin, a pet form of ancient Germanic names beginning with Wand- ‘turn, wind’ or more likely Gand- (of uncertain etymology). In Cheshire, Middle English variation between Gond- and Gand- is probably due to dialect rounding of original -a- before -n(d)-. In south England, however, the variation is difficult to explain (see 3 below).
