Meaning & History

From the late Old English personal name Golding, which was derived from Golda (or the feminine form Golde) and the patronymic suffix -ing.

The Old English personal name Golda, which persisted into the Middle Ages, was in part a byname from Old English gold "gold" and in part a short form of the various compound names beginning with this element.
