Famous bearer: Englishman Guy Fawkes who was executed for his role in a plot to blow up James I and houses of parliament.

Guy Fawkes was named Guido, his nickname was Guy. He actually had nothing to do with the plot, he was just one the men hired to blow up the King. Many historians suspect that the plan was formed by James I himself so his people would favour him and fear the Catholics, but this has not been confirmed and probably never will be. Guy Fawkes was tortured for several days as he refused to name his friends, and also the poor Guy (excuse the pun) was blamed and treated as if he had come up with the plot himself. In Britain we have a Bonfire Night on the 5th November to remember the failed plot, where bonfires are lit and families have firework displays. Traditionally people make scarecrows or Guy's and burn him in the bonfire. Today Bonfire Night is just an excuse to have fun, and celebrated all over the country.

One of the lead characters in the 1964 movie Umbrellas of Cherbourg was Guy Foucher. Auto mechanic who is in love with Catherine Deneuve's character, Genevieve. I like the French pronunciation, Gee. I think this is a nice name, but with English pronunciation kind of funny because it's slang for man.

Green Lantern Guy Gardner of DC Comics. As a result of brain damage, Guy has had many personalities, the most recognizable being cantankerous, cocky, and rude. Despite these less-than-desirable traits, he is a fan favorite.

Guy of Gisburne was Robin Hood's rival in the Robin Hood legends. I get my primary Robin Hood source from the 1983 Robin of Sherwood though, and Guy seemed a bit more attracted to the sheriff than Marion.
