Godiva is a girl’s name of Old English origin. According to an 11th-century tale, Lady Godiva rode through the town of Coventry naked, covered only by her long hair. She did so because she wanted her husband, the Earl of Mercia, to relieve the townspeople of oppressive taxes. Her story inspired many paintings, literature, and film, with Godiva even becoming the brand name and logo for a famous Belgian chocolate company. Meaning “God’s gift,” this moniker is just perfect for a sweet child like yours!
