Name Root:
aíx > Aigís > AEGIDIUS
This name comes from the Latin “Aegidius,” which means “tutelage, protection,” which in turn comes from the ancient Greek “aigís (αἰγῐ́ς).” Aegis was the name of the shield of Zeus, which was made of goatskin, in fact, Herodotus brings the name back to the term “aix” (genitive: aigos), meaning “goat.” The name changed several forms, and around the eleventh century was imported by the Normans into Britain as “Giles, Gyles.” Saint Giles (~650–710 AD), also known as Giles the Hermit, was a Greek, Christian, hermit saint from Athens, whose legend is centered in Provence and Septimania.
