Name Meaning

English (East Anglia): from the rare Middle English personal name Goche (also found as Joche). It was current in East Anglia from the early 12th to the early 13th centuries as a variant of Anglo-Norman French Go(s)ce, Jo(s)ce, a pet form of Old French Goscelin.

English: alternatively, a nickname from Anglo-Norman French gouge (from Latin gobio), the nominative form of Old French goujon (from Latin gobionem) ‘gudgeon’, perhaps for a gullible person.

Welsh: in southwestern England, possibly an Anglicized form of Welsh coch, goch ‘red(-haired)’, though the sound change is irregular. Compare Gough . It may also be a variant of Cornish and Welsh Couch , with the same meaning.
