The name Coode is from the rugged landscape of Wales. It is a Celtic name that was derived from Cudde or Codling, which were both pet-forms of the personal name Cuthbert. However, the Old English words "cod" and "codd," which mean bag, were used to refer to the belly or stomach c. 1250. Thus, Coode may be a nickname surname applied to someone whose belly was thought to resemble a bag. During the 16th century, a codder was a worker in leather, a saddler, or a peltmonger. Thus, Coode may also be an occupational surname applied to someone involved in one of these trades.

Coode Early Origins



The surname Coode was first found in Cornwall, where they held a family seat from very ancient times.

Coode Spelling Variations



Welsh surnames are relatively few in number, but they have an inordinately large number of spelling variations. There are many factors that explain the preponderance of Welsh variants, but the earliest is found during the Middle Ages when Welsh surnames came into use. Scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, which often resulted in a single person's name being inconsistently recorded over his lifetime. The transliteration of Welsh names into English also accounts for many of the spelling variations: the unique Brythonic Celtic language of the Welsh had many sounds the English language was incapable of accurately reproducing. It was also common for members of a same surname to change their names slightly, in order to signify a branch loyalty within the family, a religious adherence, or even patriotic affiliations. For all of these reasons, the many spelling variations of particular Welsh names are very important. The surname Coode has occasionally been spelled Code, Codd, Codde, Coad, Coade and others.
