Comments for FLOYD:

Many published sources refer to this name as of ancient Welsh descent, originally spelled in Wales "Llywd", and meaning "the gray". Many generations of my family have passed along this information. Because of presumed normal English phonetics, some of this family were called "Lide", and that version has stuck for generations. Flood, Lloyd, Floid, etc. are frequent variants, although Flood is more often Irish.

We named our baby boy after the boxing champion Floyd Patterson and think its THE coolest boy's name.

I think it's stupid and nerdy.

The amazing band Pink Floyd! Yay!

Bleh. I dislike this name a lot, although I don't mind Lloyd so much.

The "fl" spelling is an attempt at approximating the sound of Welsh "ll," which is simply a voiceless "l." The "l" after an "f" (or any other voiceless consonant) in English is normally voiceless (though you can make it voiced if you try), so all you have to do is leave off the "f" and you've got the sound! As I point out in my similar note to "Lloyd," it's not hard, is it!

Not QUITE right. See my latest note at Lloyd.

I kind of like this name, even though it's old-fashioned and the ''flo'' sound in it is so common in feminine names. I strongly prefer Lloyd, but this isn't a horrible name. This was the name of the cat of the editor of the teletext service Spit It Out on MTV Europe's teletext pages back in the day, so the name always makes me think of cats, though! I guess this name sounds like something Pink Floyd fans (like the editor) would choose for their son or pet.

Patrick Floyd Garrett, known forever as the man who shot Billy the Kid.

I actually like this form much better then Lloyd. It's more interesting somehow, even if I didn't like Pink Floyd. Speaking of which, it's also the name of one of the muppets.

I don't think there's anything ugly or nerdy about this name. It's different and kind of cool. In fact, the Floyd I knew was a very cool person. Lloyd is okay but Floyd is better!

Floyd means: gray; gray one; gray hair/haired. My grandpa's name, and the middle name of my cousin's son. Future first or middle name for my son. Not a bad name, sounds strong to me.

I saw a book of names once where the meaning of Floyd was wisdom.

I love this name. I'm currently pregnant, and if it's a boy, this is the name! Floyd Forever!

I absolutely adore the name Floyd. ^_^ It's handsome and cute and sadly so underappreciated! :(
