Goucher Family HistoryThis curious and interesting surname has two possible interpretations; firstly, it may be of early medieval English origin, and developed from a nickname for someone thought to have a particularly cheerful appearance, a good aspect. The derivation for this source is from the Middle English "gode", good, with "chere", from the Old French "chier", face. Secondly, the surname may be of medieval Scottish or English origin, deriving from a nickname for an elderly and venerable gentleman, from, in England, the Middle English "gode", good, wuth "sir(e)", a form of title of respect, and in Scotland, from the Old Scots "gudsyr, gudschir" (pronounced "gutscher"); both English and Scottish terms were generally taken to mean "grandfather".
