Last name origin & meaning:
German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): from modern German and Yiddish
gut, Middle High German guot ‘good’ or ‘capable’. This
may be a nickname, but in the Middle Ages the term also denoted a
freeman or a vassal of noble birth, and the surname may be a status
name from this sense. As a Jewish surname it is often ornamental.
