Name Meaning

English: perhaps a nickname from Old French gade ‘goat’; the animal was noted for its supposedly lascivious behavior.

English: perhaps from Middle English gadde (Old Norse gaddr) ‘sharp-pointed metal spike, goad’, hence a metonymic occupational name for a cattle driver or, more likely, a nickname for a persistent and irritating person.

Swedish: apparently a nickname from gadd ‘sting’.
