Other Origin(s):French
Meaning:Small goat
If Giles is a bit overdone in your opinion, perhaps the rarer and edgier Egide will tickle your fancy. This name is of Greek origin and means "small goat." How cute is that! It borrows some fame from the 7th-century Christian monk, Saint Giles, known for his hermit tendencies, and the Old French form Aegidius. As for its relation to goats, you can think of Egide as a reminder to push beyond your comfort zone, be adventurous, and at times, enjoy solitude. Goats are also super stubborn, so baby will probably face each new obstacle head-on and horns first.
