Origen: Escocés. The ancient Viking-Scottish name Jelly is derived from Giles. The surname Jelly is derived from a corruption of this personal name. Giles is derived from the Old Scandinavian personal name Gilli, which came to the British Isles with the Vikings who settled in the north of England and in Scotland in the 9th century AD. They came to the British Isles under theeadership of Sigurd the Stout after they were dispossessed of their lands by the King of Norway. First found in Ayrshire where they were seated from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
