Goldie is a girl’s name of British origin, stemming from the Yiddish name Golde or Golda. No surprise, it translates to "gold”, a perfectly fitting meaning for such a glittering name, and serves as a nickname for those with gold or blonde hair. Goldie was first popularized in the 1900s through the 1940s but is perhaps best known to audiences thanks to Overboard and First Wives Club star Goldie Hawn.
