Etymology[edit]

From Middle English Gothes, Gotes (both plural). In turn partly from Old English Gotan, Goþan, singular Gota, Goþa, and partly from Late Latin Gothi. Ultimately from Proto-Germanic *gutô, perhaps from *geutaną (to pour). Compare Old Norse Goti (Gotlander, Goth), and related also to Gutnish, Gotland.
