ÆGIDIUS.
Meaning of the baby name
ÆGIDIUS.

  

ÆGIDIUS.  Latin form of Greek Aigidios (q.v.), meaning "with the ægis," i.e. "a disciple, a servant."

... In 475, there was an Ægidius, a Roman commander in Gaul, who was for a time an independent sovereign, ruling over both Romans and Franks.  About two centuries later, an Athenian, as it is said, by name Ægidius, having worked a miraculous cure by laying his cloak over the sick man, fled to France to avoid the veneration of the people, and dwelt on the banks of the Rhone, living on the milk of a hind.  The creature was chased by the king of France, and, flying wounded to her master, discovered him to the hunters.  Thenceforth he has been revered as St. Giles, and considered as the patron of numbers thus called. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).
