Hello everyone,
I'm would like to know if anyone has information regarding my last name "gootkin." I have no idea what nationality it is or where it comes from. Any help would be most appreciated.

A version of Gutkin, I suppose.
German Gutkind, "good child"? Or a Russian-Jewish name, denoting descent from a lady called Gutka (or Gootka). This may be German/Yiddish "good" with Russian diminutive ending.
