NAMES FROM TEUTON MYTHOLOGY. Section I.--Ghth. It is hard to class this first class of names under those of mythology, for they hear in them our own honoured word for divinity; and though some arose when the race were worshippers of false deities, yet under the same head are included many given in a Christian spirit. Some philologists tell us, though they are not unanimous in the explanation, that this name is from the same source as the Sanscrit Svaddta, self-given or uncreate, and as the Zend Quadata, Persian Khoda, and our own Teuton term for Deity--the Northern Chtd and Gothic Gruth, whence the High German Cot and Low German &od. Others explain it as the creating or all-pervading. Others, again, derive it from od, possession, and in early Christian times there was a distinction between God (mas.) and the neuter god, an idol. It is equally doubtful whether this divine word be the origin of the adjective guth, gut, cuot, gode. Whether they are only cognate, or whether they are absolutely alien, and the adjective be related to the Greek ayaflos, wherever they come from, the names derived from either God or good are so much alike, as to be inextricably mixed, so that they must be treated of together. The great leading race seem to have called themselves the good--Gutans in Gothic, Kuzun in high German, and Getai in ancient Greece, when they were the near neighbours of Thrace, and supplied so many slaves to Greece and Rome that Geta is the stock name for a slave in the comedies of Terence. Whether these are the same race as the Gautsoc Guttones, who once dwelt on the shores of the Baltic, who named Gotha, and have descendants in Swedish Gothland, is a knotty point on which the learned are at variance; hut what is matter of certainty is their settlement on the Danube; t...
