Goose (plural: geese) is the English name for a considerable number of birds, belonging to the family Anatidae. This family also includes swans, most of which are larger than geese, and ducks, which are smaller.

This article deals with the true geese in the subfamily Anserinae, tribe Anserini.

A number of other waterbirds, mainly related to the shelducks, have goose as part of their name.

Goose in its origins is one of the oldest words of the Indo-European languages (Crystal), the modern names deriving from the proto-Indo-European root, *ghans-, thence Sanskrit hamsa (feminine hamsii), Persian Ghaz, Latin anser, Greek khn etc.

In the Germanic languages, the root word led to Old English gs with the plural gs, German Gans and Old Norse gas. Other modern derivatives are Russian gus and Old Irish giss; the family name of the cleric Jan Hus is derived from the Czech derivative husa.

The term goose applies to the birds in general, and to a female in particular. The word gander (Old English gandra) is used for a male in particular. Young birds before fledging are called goslings. A group of geese on the ground is called a gaggle; when flying in formation is called a wedge or a skein (see also list of collective nouns for birds).

The following two genera are only tentatively placed in the Anserinae ; they may belong to the shelducks or form a subfamily on their own:
