COAD Family HistoryThis interesting surname may be a metonymic occupational name for a maker of purses and bags, deriving from the Old English pre 7th Century "cod(e)" meaning "bag". It may also be a metonymic occupational nickname for a fishmonger, deriving from the Middle English "codde" meaning "fish". Finally, it may be a variant of Cody which is an Anglicized form of the Gaelic O Cuidighthigh meaning "descendant of Cuidightheach", a byname for a helpful person. The surname dates back to the mid 12th Century, (see below).
