Other Origin(s):Latin
Meaning:Small goat; Protection
There will be no shielding your little one from the admiration their name, Egidius, will receive! With Greek and Latin origins, Egidius traces its roots back to the Ancient Greek word for a “small goat,”aigidion, which later became a Latin name, Aegidius. In Greek mythology, Aegis was the name used to describe the goatskin shield worn by Zeus, the king of Gods, giving Egidius its second meaning of “protection.” Whether your baby Egidius grows up to be a protector of the animal kingdom or the people who mean the most to them, their name will set them on the right path.
