Name Meaning

English (Suffolk): variant of Caddy .

Breton and French: probably a variant or an altered form of Breton Cadic, a derivative of kad, cad (Old Breton cat) ‘battle’, applied as a nickname for a warrior. The surname Cady is found mainly in Maine-et-Loire, which borders Brittany; in Brittany itself and elsewhere in France it is rare.

Perhaps also an Americanized form of German Gäde (see Gade ), Göde (see Goede ), or Köthe, all from the medieval personal name Godo.
