Origin of the name GODERIC.
Etymology of the name GODERIC.
Meaning of the baby name GODERIC.


GODERIC.  Anglo-Saxon name meaning "divine king," from Old English god "god," and rice "mighty, powerful, rich, wealthy."

... Goderica very old word, which, strange to say, was, at Cambrai, equivalent to fainéant, or 'ne'er do weel,' it must be supposed in allusion to some particularly discreditable Goderic, as everywhere else it signifies divine ruler. Our own St. Goderic was an Anglo-Saxon abbot, and the name, which means divine rule, grew so common among the English, that the Norman nobles called Henry I. and his Queen, Godric and Godiva, in derision of the lady's English blood.  Goderic does, indeed, swarm in Domesday Book, and has left the surname Goodrich. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
