Goodyear Name Meaning

English: probably a nickname from Middle English gode ‘good’ (Old English god) + year, yere ‘year’, bestowed on someone who frequently used the expression, perhaps in the sense ‘(as I hope to have a) good year’ or as a New Year salutation. Alternatively, it may have been from an Americanized form of French Gauthier. English translation of German Gutjahr, originally a nickname for someone born on New year’s Day.
