Name Meaning

Some characteristic forenames: German Hans, Kurt, Fritz, Gerhard, Erwin, Heinz, Otto, Reinhold, Siegfried, Wilhelm.

German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): from Middle High German guot ‘good’ or ‘capable’, German and Yiddish gut. This may be a nickname, but in the Middle Ages the term also denoted a freeman or a vassal of noble birth, and the surname may be a status name from this sense. As a Jewish surname it is often artificial. This surname is also found in France (Alsace and Lorraine), Poland, and Czechia. Compare Gut and Good .

History: This is the name of a (Swiss) German Mennonite family, among the Mennonites in the US established mainly in the Americanized form Good .
