Etymology[edit]

The first noun comes from the verb gjuta (to cast). In Old Swedish and Low German, göte means casting.

The people mentioned as geatas in Beowulf, gautar in Icelandic sagas, gutones by Pliny, and gotones by Tacitus, have the problem that three different areas of Scandinavia have similar names: Jutland, Götaland and Gotland. Add the Goths to this, and it must remain uncertain if these foreign authors knew which group they were referring to. Many etymologies have been proposed, including at least two with links to that same verb. The fact that the Geats remain semi-mythical doesn't stop the word from spawning, e.g. the city Göteborg founded in 1621 and Götiska förbundet (Geatish Society) in the 1811.
