Gillie is a name for all genders, somewhat more commonly used for girls.
At least in the US, the name Gillie is extremely rare. Recently, only a handful of babies has been named Gillie each year. That means it’s extremely unlikely that a boy or girl called Gillie will meet someone with the same name. So, Gillie is a very special name!
Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter G is not particularly common as a first letter for given names: only 2.4% of all common first names in the US begin with a G. The most common initial letters for first names are A and J, while U and X are the least common first letters of given names.
With six letters, the name Gillie is of average length. In fact, 28% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly six letters. 24% of all first names are shorter, while 48% have seven letters or more. On average, first names in the US (not counting hyphenated names) are 6.5 letters long. There are no significant differences between boys' and girls' names.
This means that if 2.4% of all first names begin with a G, this initial letter is less common than the other letters on average.
If your name is Gillie and someone asks after your name, you can of course just tell them what it is. But sometimes that isn't so easy - what if it's too loud, and you don't understand them well? Or what if the other person is so far away that you can see them but not hear them? In these situations, you can communicate your name in so many other ways: you call spell it, sign it, or even use a flag to wave it...
So that everyone really understands you when you have to spell the name Gillie, you can simply say:

These flags are used for maritime communication - each flag represents a letter.
In the navy, sailors of two ships might wave flags to each other to send messages. A sailor holds two flags in specific positions to represent different letters.
