Etymology of the name EASTGOTA.
Meaning of the baby name EASTGOTA.


EASTGOTA.  Anglo-Saxon name meaning "eastern Goth," form Old English east "east, eastern," and Goda (Saxon Geát) "a Goth." (A Compendious Anglo-Saxon and English Dictionary, Bosworth, 1901). 

... The real history of the Goths begins about the year 245, when they were living near the mouths of the Danube under the rule of Ostrogotha [Austraguta], the first king of the Amaling stock.  Ostrogotha was celebrated in tradition for his "patience"; but in what way he displayed that virtue we are not informed, for history tells only of his victories.  Whether on account of his patience or his deeds in war, his fame was widely spread, for one of the oldest of Anglo-Saxon poems mentions him as "Eastgota, the father of Unwén."  The name of this son is given by Jordanes as Hunuil, but probably the Anglo-Saxon form is the right one... (The Story of the Goths, Bradley, 1891)
