Gott Early Origins



The surname Gott was first found in Bavaria, where the name was closely identified in early medieval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs. Like many surnames, the name Gott began as a personal name. Gott was a short form of any of several German personal names which began with that word, which means "good" or "God."
