  • Name Welcome Giles Rainwater  [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
    • Yes, Welcome was really his name - it's not a typo. It is said that he hated this name and that for most of his life he went only by Giles. At some point he added the middle initial R., which according to his descendants, didn't stand for anything.

Giles so hated this name that he for most of his life he used only Giles, eventually adding a middle R., which according to his descendants, didn't stand for anything.
