I've heard it spelled both ways from different family members. It's a family name, either Russian or Polish, and I'm not sure of the actual roots. Does anyone know anything about it? PM me for more info--specific questions only. As of 6.30.2007:
Willa Elaine, Miranda Scarlett, Rosabella Marie, Bernadette Elizabeth
Caden Noah, Gabriel Rowan, Logan Walter, Jason Nathaniel
Need to come up with new faves...complicated.(pm if you want the story)

Probably identifying someone from the town of Gorodets in Russia, which you can read about here -
There may be other places with similar names, Gorodecki and Gordecki are surnames in Poland (the letter C pronounced TS).

There is also a Ukrainian place name, Gorodek, which could have given rise to the surname Gorodetsky.

Thanks for both. I'm going to do research on these places and talk to some older relatives about places of migration.
