Origin: Goldstraw
Dialect plays a part
THE SURNAME Goldstraw is a local variant of the placename Goostrey near Holmes Chapel, which is recorded as Gostrel in the 1086 Domesday Book, Gosetre, Gorstre during the 12th and 13th century, and Goulstry in the 17th century.
Developed

The placename was originally taken by Ekwall in his Dictionary of English Placenames as meaning the tree belonging to Godhere, an old Saxon name, but McNeal Dodgson in the Placenames of Cheshire proposes a hypothetical Old English word ?gorst-treow? in the sense of gorse bush or bramble.
The local pronunciation of Goldstraw probably developed along the following lines. Just as the word ?cold? becomes the dialect ?cowd?, and with the inclusion of the intrusive letter ?l?, the initial part of the name would be easily associated with the word ?gold? and the original form of the name just as soon forgotten.
Interestingly enough, the placename is still pronounced Goostrey, and hence, is closer to its original form.

Origin: MCGoldrick was the original name...in Donegal, Ireland..when they moved from Ireland to Scotland, they changed the name to Goldie, family legend says they could not spell McGoldrick, but Scottish history says alot of Irish people changed their names, dropping the Mc and the O' from their names because the Scottish people looked down on the Irish.

Origin: My interpretation of the meaning of McGoldrick can be traced back to about 900A.D. It comes from the gaelic Magualghairg and was prevalent in the Breifne region of Ireland, now Cos.Cavan,Fermanagh and Leitrim. It can be traced to the kings of Breifne and is still mentioned in that form till about 1500. In more modern times it is found as McGolrick,McGouldrick,McGolderick. Many emigrants,particularly to the US changed it to Golden,Golding as they weren't able to spell. In the west of Scotland it seems to have depended on how you accent was interpreted as to how your name was spelled. My Dad was one of 10 and there are at least 4 different spellings on birth certificates.Fortunately they were able to retain the family name .I was always told we were descended from the Spanish,(I thought the Armada)but having researched I was astounded to learn of the Spanish history in Ireland.Well worth a look for McGoldricks!!
