Meaning & History

Originally denoted a person who came from an place called Götzing, Götzingen or Goetzingen.
The place name Götzing is most likely derived from a combination of the first name Götz, a short form of Gottfried, or the first name Gezo and the German suffix -ing, which is used to denote a form of belonging to the previous part of the word. In this case Götzing would mean "belonging to the landlord Götz/Gezo".
