Meaning:friend of God; good friend
Godwin is a boy's name forged from Anglo-Saxon roots and English and German origins. Sharing the company of Theophilus and Amadeus, Godwin also means "friend of God"—though others may attest it simply means "good friend." Far more than a trusted ally, Godwin is most often associated with the great earl of Wessex—one of the most powerful noble figures in English history. Associated with great wealth, military might, and clever allegiances, Godwin is the epitome of friends in high places.
