Gottlieb

Gottlieb is the German form of Goteleib which is an Ancient Germanic male name meaning “God’s love” or “beloved by God” or “beloved of God” composed from Old High German elements got (god) from PIE *ǵʰutós (invoked, poured) derived from root word *ǵʰew- (pour, liberate); and lieb (beloved, dear) derived from PIE root word *lewbʰ- (to love). Gottlieb also means “god +offspring, son”, the latter from Old High German leiba (offspring, son, descendant). It’s also a German and Jewish (Ashkenazic) surname derived from the given name.
