The name translates as "Battle-Army", and given the warlike propensities of the period no doubt accounts for the relative popularity of the later medieval surname. In various spelling forms it is found in France as Gontier; Germany, Gunther; Sweden, Gunnar, and as the Scandinavian patronymics, Gundersen and Gunnarsson. The name, as a given name, was recorded in Northumberland in 1094 as "Gunterus", and one Guntier was recorded in Hampshire in 1165.
