From 250-100 BC, Samartia from the East invaded south Russia; this forced the Sagetae (Scythians) that lived there further west into the Teutones (Germany), Swithoid, and some went north into Poland. These warlike descendents of Gad came to be called ‘Getae’ or ‘Gauthie’ and later as ‘Goths.’ Among them also were the Scuths (later called Scots).
More links about goidelic/gaelic coming from Gad/God. Thanks Z x
Our list of Pictish Kings begins properly with King Gede. As with Cruithne and his seven sons, it is the view of many historians that the names of all the earliest kings, from Gede (No. 1) right up to, though not including, Brude son of Mailcon (No.38), are also mythical. That is not a view that is automatically shared by this author, who sees no reason to reject the validity of the King Lists, and is prepared to accept their provenance.
YEAH! Gede / Gud / Gad / GOD / ....GORDI !!!!! ...I KNEW IT!!!! LOL I think that it's becoming obvious that there are very many connections between the ancient tribes, which have been lost or obscured over time. Gede / Gud / Gad is a very plausible one to me, (especially bearing in mind that the modern "English" written names are presumably "translations" of older languages, or in some cases "interpretations" of spoken words?)
