Meaning of the baby name GIOLLA.


GIOLLA.  Irish name meaning "a servant or disciple."  Not used alone, but in combination with other names as, Brian Mac Giolla Phádraig (d. 1652), who was an Irish scholar and poet of noble descent.

    Giolla is the very same word as the Scottish vernacular gillie, a servant; and in Ireland, the giolla eachaid, or horse servant, resulted in the term gallowglass, which is so constantly used in English narratives of Irish wars. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).

    Giolla, Latinized "Gulielmus," and Anglicised "William," signifies a servant or disciple; as Giolla-Josa (Anglicised "Giles" and Latinized "Gelasius,") the servant of Jesus; Giolla Chriosd (Anglicised "Gilchreest,") the servant of Christ; Giolla Muire, the servant of Mary; Giolla Paidraig, the servant of St. Patrick, etc. (Irish Pedigrees: The Origin and Stem of the Irish Nation, O'Hart, v.1, 1876).
