Osgood Name Meaning

English: from the Old Norse personal name Ásgautr, composed of the elements ás ‘god’ + the tribal name Gaut (see Josli). This was established in England before the Conquest, in the late Old English forms Osgot or Osgod, and was later reinforced by the Norman Ansgot. Jewish: adoption of 1 in place of some like-sounding Ashkenazic surname.
