Professor Tolkien used Giles to name the main character in his story 'Farmer Giles of Ham'. Giles is but the 'vulgar' form of the name; the farmer's full name was Aegidius Ahenobarbus Julius Agricola de Hammo.

In Polish this name is quite rare, but it does appear - either in a Greek-influenced form of "Egidiusz", or shortened to "Idzi".

Giles Corey was the one guy in the Salem witch trials who wasn't hung. He got squished to death by rocks for not pleading guilty or not guilty.

I always thought it was pronounced with a hard g... I like that pronunciation better personally.

Fictional bearer: In the YA novel "Incarceron", the main character Finn thinks he's the long-lost Prince Giles (I haven't read the sequel yet so I don't know how this ends).

Pronounced with a J sound.

I love Rupert Giles on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but I would never name a son Giles because he would be teased and called Giles Goat-Boy after the famous book by John Barth.
