Meaning: Newer form of Old Norse Gautr meaning "Geat". [noted -ed] The Geats (sometimes, perhaps incorrectly, called Goths) were a Germanic tribe inhabiting an area in Sweden corresponding to present-day Götaland ("land of the Geats"). It was originally a byname for someone living in this area. It may also be a short form of names like Götmar and Götulf.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geats "sometimes called Goths, [3]" but later says "It is a long-standing controversy whether the Goths were Geats." The Swedish word for Geats is 'götar' (singular 'göt', 'göte') and the word for Goths is 'goter' (singular 'got').
