Hi,
Goslar is the city name (
www.goslar.de )
You may make a small sightseeing through the city which is over 1200 years old...
The name comes from LAR which is the meaning of Lager (space where people occasionally live) and GOSE which is the name of a small river crossing nearby this city. So when the place become a small town, the name was given from the combination out of GOSE and LAR... "Goslar" (this was some 1000 years ago...)
So all things related with the GOSE is practically connected to the town of Goslar. They have famous the GOSE BEER, the GOSE QUELL, the GOSE BLABLA ...
At the end, there is a GOSE NAVIGATION ... which is a shipping company related to this old and ancient town. And the ships are named accordingly in line as GOSE Racer, Gose Runner, Gose Sprinter ... We have friends from this city. And they
suggested us to rename our ship as Gose Runner.
I like this name and use as a nickname.
