The English and French surname Goddard is of Norman French origin. The name is derived from Godhard, a personal name composed of the Germanic elements god meaning “good” and hard meaning “hardy, brave, or strong.” The name was popular in Europe during the Middle Ages as a result of the fame of St. Gotthard, an 11th-century bishop of Hildesheim who founded a hospice on the pass from Switzerland to Italy that bears his name. The name is first recorded in 1208 when Robert God(d)ard is registered in the "Curia Rolls of Hampshire."
