    Brave or Guilty pleasure: Egidius

    Hi all,

    I have always loved the name Egidius (i'm orginally Dutch but live in Ireland)
    I think the English pronunciation would be eee-KIE-di-us or ee-DGIE-di-us

    I'm now pregnant with my third son (first two boys and girl all have uncommon medieval names too)

    Is Egidius a unique brave name or should I put it out of my head?

    Thanks for the advice!

    Oh small addition: Nickname would be Gus, but just for at home and stuff. He will be registered at school as Egidius.

    For me, it is a bit too much but would make a good middle name.

    I would like to hear your other children's names just to see how they flow together and just for curiosity sake.

    Personally, for me, it is a lot but I am from America so considering some of the ridiculously hard to pronounce Irish names I think it would be perfectly fine especially if he had a nn to go by if he wished.

    I will say it is very unique and brave.

    Depends on your other kids' names I think, but without that context I'd say it's a better middle.

    Very unattractive. Better for a pet.

    I'd say it's more of a GP. I agree with pp, it's a better middle. Even if it is his middle name, you could still call him Gus.
