Name Meaning

English:1. habitational name from Ghent in Flanders, from which many wool workers and other skilled craftsmen migrated to England in the early Middle Ages. The surname is found most commonly in West Yorkshire, around Leeds. The Flemish place name is first recorded in Latin documents as Gandi and Gandavum; it is apparently of Celtic origin, but of uncertain meaning. 2. from a nickname from Middle English gaunt ‘thin’, ‘wasted’, ‘haggard’ (of uncertain, possibly Scandinavian, origin). 3. variant of Gant .
