stems beginning with גו and their glosses

If words have a stem that sounds like another stem, are they possibly related? E.g. is גוי related to גוה?

גו into the midst of (6), in the midst of (1), the midst of (1), within it (1)
גוב great grub (3), Gob (2), untranslated (1)
גוג Gog (12)
גוד invade (4)
גוה body (13), hubris (4)
גוז past (1), sever (1)
גוי nation (514)
גולן Golan (4)
גומץ pothole (1)
גוני Guni (2)
גוע expire (24)
גוף trunk limb (2), trunk (1)
גור guest (109), reside (57), terror (17), whelp (9), amass (4), awe (4), abode (3), stand awe (2), storehouse (2), terrorize (2), colonize (1), hospitality (1), i-am-in-awe (1), stood awe (1)

Every time I do this, it raises questions for me.
