GOLDING Family History

Recorded in several forms as shown below, this is an English surname. It derives from the pre 7th century personal name Golding, recorded as Goldinc in the famous Domesday Book of 1086. The development is from the original personal name "Golda", meaning "son of Gold". This persisted into the Middle Ages as a given name, with "Golde" as the feminine form, and was used in some cases as a nickname or byname for the colour of a person's hair whilst and names with "Gold" as the first element were usually compounds often associated with the Gods of Fire, Water and War.
