Geoffrey, often spelled Jeffrey (among other variants), and abbreviated as Geoff or Jeff or Geof, is a male given name in the English-speaking world. It is from a Norman French form of a Germanic name, Gottfried or Godfrey, meaning God's place. The second element is Germanic frid "peace", but the first element may be either gawia "territory", walha "foreign" or gisil "hostage". It is possible that two or more names merged into a single form. Jefferson, which originated as a patronymic surname meaning Geoffrey's son, has also been used as a given name in the English-speaking world. Jeffries is another patronymic surname.
