Giles Genealogy & History

Giles is a European surname, a short form of the Greek Aegidius, which means "wearer of the goatskin", a common garment for religious hermits, used as a nickname for people devoted to improving their community. It took on many different spellings throughout England and continental Europe, like Gillette, Ilchman, and Jiles. Giles family history begins with the recording of Ailward Gile in the Buckinghamshire pipe rolls in 1176. Giles genealogy includes linguist Herbert Giles, co-founder of the Wade-Giles Romanization system for converting Chinese characters into the Roman alphabet. Giles County, Virginia, is named for William Henry Giles.
