My last name is Gooderum. From what my grandmother told me b4 she passed away was that a long time ago there was a woman that was related to the royal family living in the royal castle in denmark. She fell for the gardner of the castle and it was forbidden for royalty to be with someone so much lower in the higher archy. so they snuck off and moved to america where they changed there name from godrum too gooderum. I live in minnesota and there are plenty of Gooderums here!
