Egidio Name Meaning & Origin

Egidio

Pronunciation: n/a

Origin of the name Giles:

From the Old French Gilles, a derivative of the Latin Aegidius, which is from the Greek aigis ( a goatskin shield of Zeus, a protection). The name was borne by the semilegendary St. Giles, a 7th-century Athenian who had the power to work miracles and heal the crippled. He fled to southern Gaul and became a hermit to escape fame and the adoration of his fans. Nevertheless, he was popular throughout Europe, and his name was favored in the Middle Ages.
