Goren Name Meaning
Jewish (Ashkenazic): altered form of Horn 5, under Russian influence; since Russian has no h and alters h in borrowed words to g. In Israel the name has been reinterpreted by folk etymology as being from Hebrew goren ‘threshing floor’, which is in fact etymologically and semantically unrelated.
