Meaning & Origins

From an Old English female personal name derived from ēad ‘prosperity, riches’ + gӯð ‘strife’. This was borne by a daughter (961–984) of Edgar the Peaceful. (She was named in accordance with the common Old English practice of repeating name elements within a family.) She spent her short life in a convent, and is regarded as a saint.
403rd in the U.S.
English: occupational name for a worker in metal, from Middle English smith (Old English smið, probably a derivative of smītan ‘to strike, hammer’). Metalworking was one of the earliest occupations for which specialist skills were required, and its importance ensured that this term and its equivalents were perhaps the most widespread of all occupational surnames in Europe. Medieval smiths were important not only in making horseshoes, plowshares, and other domestic articles, but above all for their skill in forging swords, other weapons, and armor. This is the most frequent of all American surnames; it has also absorbed, by assimilation and translation, cognates and equivalents from many other languages (for forms, see Hanks and Hodges 1988).
