The surname Gillette is of English origin and the name actually came to England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name is derived from the medieval name, Giles which in turn was derived from the Greek word, aigidion which means young goat or sometimes a kid. The family with this surname was first found to be living in the region of Norfolk where they had been granted lands by the duke of Normandy.
