and a friend suggested a corruption of cordatus (Latin: wise or adverbial form: more wisely)
I am doing research about a man whose given names are either Nun Gordatius or Nowen Godratius. Google search of Godratius yield only books he authored - I supposed he knew how to spell his own name! Nevertheless the Godratius persists in other records, notably those of the Lutheran mission society with which he was aligned. His father was mission-educated, devout and a teacher - so if I can connect Gordatius to a Christian scholar or something, or Latin meaning, it might be convincing. I have no Latin, so I'm stuck.
