Ged is the Scots word for a pike. There are several lands named
after this fierce fish, which may also be given in the plural as geddes.
The arms of both Ged and Geddes show three pike, and this is clearly
canting, i.e. merely a pun upon the bearers name. The English
name for such a fish is luce, and various Norman families
named De Lucy, also have coats of arms with these fish.
