Gotee History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English, Scottish


Among the the peoples of ancient Scotland, the first to use the name Gotee were the Strathclyde- Britons. Gotee was a name for someone who lived in Edinburghshire, where the family was found since the early Middle Ages. Gotee is an ancient Scottish name that evolved from the Goldie, which derives from the Old English personal name Gold.

The Gotee Motto


The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Honestas
Motto Translation: Honesty.
