Meaning of the baby name HELIE.

  

HELIE.  An early Norman baronial form of Helje (q.v.), from the Swedish pronunciation of Helge (q.v.), meaning "holy." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884; Ny Kirkehistoriske Samlinger, v.5, 1865-71).

... On the death of the Conqueror, Gaultier and Haimeri, besieged in the citidal of Mans by Helie and Foulques, count of Anjou, after some days, proposing a truce, spoke as follows to Helie, who had permission from them to approach safely as often as he chose, clad in white:  "We keep this citadel," said they, "which our master confided to us, well provisioned, and we fear neither you nor your machines.  We can hit you with our arrows and stones, because, being on this high tower, we are so much above you, but, through fear of God, and through friendship for you, we spare you." (Mores Catholici, or, Ages of Faith, Digby, 1847)
