gottfrida

FEMININE FORM:
gottfrid
LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > germanic > west germanic > german
ORIGIN:
germanic  /  old norse 
NAME ROOT:
*GUDą *FRIþUZ > GODAFRID / GUðIFRIðR
MEANING:
This name derives from the Old High German and Old Norse name “Godafrid and Guðifriðr”, composed of two elements: “*gudą” (god, deity, divine being) plus “*friþuz” (peace, tranquility, friendship). In turn the name means “God's peace, peaceful pledge, God gives me the peace of mind, my friendship with God”. The name was introduced to Britain by the Normans. There are several English spelling variations of the German name "Gottfried". Some are derived directly from the Germanic (the ones that begin with "G") and others are derived from the Anglo-Norman (the ones that begin with "J"), but always from the Germanic root. 1) Geoffroy d'Amiens was a bishop of Amiens. He is a saint in the Catholic Church. 2) Geoffrey V called the Handsome was the Count of Anjou, Touraine, and Maine by inheritance, from 1129 and then Duke of Normandy by conquest from 1144. 3) Gudrid Thorbjarnardóttir (Icelandic: Guðríður Þorbjarnardóttir) also known as Vidforla or “the Far-Traveler” was a Norse woman born around the year 980 in Laugarbrekka, Iceland. She is best known for her appearances in “The Saga of Eirik the Red” and “The Saga of the Greenlanders,” known collectively as the “The Vinland Sagas”.
