Subject: Gottfried and Gottlieb - Christian names in origin, or heathen names?

I was just wondering if the names Gottfried and Gottlieb are created in a time where christianity was the dominant religion, instead of the ancient heathen religion (with gods like Wodan and Thor). Does the 'Gott' in Gottfried and Gottlieb refer back to the Christian God, or to one (or all) of the heathen gods (Wodan perhaps?)?

I would like to know that. :)

Thank you very much in advance! :)
