Meaning:son of the red-head
Gilderoy is a boy's name of Irish origin. It will likely come as no surprise that a darling name like this that means "son of the red-head" comes from Ireland. But what you might not have considered was the connection to the Harry Potter series this name would give baby. A trickster wizard to look to and an inadvertent connection to Kenneth Branagh? There are certainly much worse choices!
