With baby Geoffrey at your side, you’ll always have peace of mind! Geoffrey is a masculine moniker of German, French, and English origin. Derived from the Old German words guda, meaning “god,” and friþuz, meaning “peace,” Geoffrey’s definition is “God’s peace.” The anglicized version of this name, Jeffrey, has become slightly more popular than Geoffrey, but you will still find many instances of the latter today. Notable namesakes include Pirates of the Caribbean actor Geoffrey Rush, The Canterbury Tales writer Geoffrey Chaucer, and professional skateboarder Geoff Rowley.
