I came across this name and really love it, especially with the Gillie for short (in Scottish means 'keeper of rivers' or something like that) My husband is Scottish and we have an Archie, and a Harry, our surname also starts with a G and would flow really well. What does anyone else think?

Ghillie is a gamekeeper on estates and works also looks after the rivers. I'm also thinking of shortening to Bertie, if he doenst look like a Ghillie/Gil
