WHAT DOES GILLESPIE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Gillespie

Gillespie is both a masculine given name, and a surname in the English language. It is an Anglicised form of the Irish language Mac Giolla Easpaig and the Scottish Gaelic Mac Gille Easbuig, which are patronymic forms of a byname which means "servant of the bishop". First recorded in Ireland in the year 1175 and in Scotland a generation later in 1199, the name is believed to go as far back as 5th century Ireland. Other forms of the name include Gillaspie and Gillispie. The Gillespie families of Ireland and Scotland each have their own separate coat of arms. It is also one of the only Gaelic surnames to have its roots in Latin, Easpaig/Easbuig being borrowed from the Latin word for bishop, "Episcopus".
