Etymology of the name GILLES.
Meaning of the baby name GILLES.

  

GILLES.  French name meaning "with the ægis," i.e. "a disciple, a servant."  Cognate with Irish Giolla.  Some render such names "pledge," and even "hostage."  It has always been Latinized Ægidius.

    Julius was hereditary throughout the empire, and lingered on long in Wales, Wallachia, and Italy.  It is the most obvious source for the French Gilles; though as has been already said, that word claims to be the Greek Aigidios, and is like both the Keltic Giolla and Teutonic Gil...
