From google:

nickname from Middle English gode 'good' + enoh 'enough' (Old English genoh). Reaney suggests that it was bestowed on one who was easily satisfied; it may also have been used with reference to one whose achievements were average, 'good enough' though not outstanding.

Larry, as a defenseman, exeeded the spirit of his name.

The intent is for the natural name to have some quality or behavior of a defenseman,
