The surname Bloodgood is a Welsh name of old Celtic origin. The surname is from the well-known Welsh personal name Lloyd. The surname Bloodgood features the distinctive Welsh patronymic prefix "ab-" which means "son of." The original form of the name was "Ab-Lloyd," which evolved into "Ap-Llud" and then "Blud."

Bloodgood Spelling Variations



The Welsh have an extremely large amount of spelling variations of their native surnames to their credit. It was up to the priest or the scribe taking the official records to determine how the spoken name was to be made literal. As time progressed, the old Brythonic names of Wales were recorded in English, which was especially problematic since the English language had extreme difficulty recording the highly inflected sounds of Cymraeg. Spelling variations were, however, also carried out according to an individual's design: a branch loyalty within the family, a religious adherence, or even patriotic affiliations could be indicated by spelling variations of one's name. The spelling variations of the name Bloodgood have included Blood, Bloode, Blud, Bludd and others.
