I hated being called Gyles as a kid; that is Geye-yels, not Guy-yels...
Worst of all, as a kid, was I had a lisp. 'Gyelsh' was the best I could do. No wonder I was called by a nickname, Ghillie, until I was eight.
I got over lisp, and by around seventeen liked it. It's unusual.
I also have middle names, Julian Hawkins. The Hawkins is after a supposed Great x 8 Grandfather.
I LOVE names meanings, but, well. Gyles means young goat; kid. LOL
In context, when the name we pronounce Gyles was coined (in Greece), it would have meant something like 'warrior', as the conotation of kid was martial; it was a reference to shield covering.
Julian mean 'downy-bearded' and is very apt as I am something of a Joshua. Hawkins is either Hawk kin, or 'son of house-ruler'. Williams means 'son of strong helmet', but I don't know if 'hemlet' has humourous penile connotations in US English. In context it would have meant indomintable.
Thus I am Baby-Beard Warrior, son of Hawk, son of Indominatable. Droll.
One of my daughter's middle names is Shenandoah, so it kind of fits...
