Where is this Spelling from? --Maxim 13:17, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

The "Gonith" spelling came from fansites. I don't know how that spelling came up, since the audio doesn't even SOUND like that--there's clearly an F sound in the audio, which should lend to either "Goniff" or "Goneff" (I recall closed captioning from WB days saying Goneff). --Shiningpikablu252 16:17, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
Gonif is the Yiddish word for "thief" this is probably the origin for this character's name. Trainer-c 15:27, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
