Guthrie, Gutry, Guttarage, Gutterege, Guttery, Guttridge
Origin Irish, Scottish
: derived from the Gaelic name Ó Flaithimh
"descendant of Flaitheamh", which is a given name meaning prince.
The name Guthrie came about when Ó Flaithimh
was confused with the Gaelic word laithigh
meaning mud, which was then associated with gutters.
1) derived from the Gaelic word gaothair
, meaning windy place,
and the regional suffix "ach"
The name was given to those who lived near Forfar in County Tayside, SCT.
2) derived from the Gaelic name Mag uchtre
, meaning "son of Uctre",
which is of uncertain etymology, but may be related to the word "uchtlach
which means child.
