Meaning & History

From the Proto-Slavic gospodь, meaning "lord" or "host." Variant of the Old Polish gospodzin, meaning "landlord."

"Gospodь" further derives from the Proto-Indo-European gʰóstipotis, a compound of gʰóstis, "guest;" "stranger;" "host" and pótis, "master;" "ruler;" "husband," essentially yielding a meaning of "guest master."
