The surname Guth developed into a surname independently, from a few sources. It evolved from the Low German word "Gude," meaning "good. " It came from the Frisian word "Gudde." As well as from the German Gut(h), which was used in the Middle Ages to refer to a free man of noble birth.

Guth Early Origins



The surname Guth was first found in Hamburg, where the name contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation which would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. In later years the name branched into many houses, each playing a significant role in the local social and political affairs. Gude is also connected to several place names in the Holstein region. The earliest instance of the name appears to be of a knight in Upper Alsace in 1251 with the name Guotman. A Herman der Guot is on record in Suz in 1236; and a Gerhard de Guden was on record in Kolberg in 1277.
