Joy is a wonderful name but Joyce is better in my opinion.

I don't like virtue names, I prefer names that don't mean anything (other than the etymology). Besides, this name is too short for my taste, but it's not a bad name either.

We all want Joy. It's almost as if it's too much in a name. Too much to live up to? It's awesome as a middle-name. It's cute as a first name but you gotta know it's gonna be a really strong connotation.

I like this name, but it seems a bit plain and short for me. I prefer this as a nickname for Joyce, rather than being on its own.

Makes an okay middle name. But it's incredibly bland as a first name.

I like the name. Pretty and sweet. We need more Joy in the world. Don't say this name is dated.

It's a cute MIDDLE name. But as a first one... well, for example, we got that new movie "Inside Out"... it's just too much of a farce to live up to.

Simple and nice enough; I much prefer Joyce.

It's a beautiful first name as well as a beautiful middle name! Some of my favorite combinations are:

Joy Abigail
Hannah Joy
Joy Alice
Isla Joy
Liana Joy
Margaret Joy

I just adore short, sweet, and simple names!

My given name is Joy. I changed it. Too many jokes, plus it did NOT suit me. I am not a Joyful, joyous bundle of cheer as it suggests. I feel bad since Mom chose it because she saw me as "her Joy". But it just didn't suit me. I see it nice for others... I hope one day it will be as popular as Faith, but I doubt it.

Joy is my sister's name. She's going to kill me, but it's never been my favorite name. It does suit her well, though.

I like this name. My sister's name is Marlayna Joy. It flows well, don't you think? There is something about the name Joy that is so... joyful and bright!

This is my name, and I LOVE it. Always have, always will. I also think it's a nice middle name.

I love this name. It's much better than the Faith's, Hope's, and Charity's. I prefer rarer Puritan names, like Temperance, Constance, and, of course, Joy. It makes a lovely middle name, but also a lovely first name.

This is my friend's middle name, and it sounds lovely, it is such a happy name and it makes a good middle name. Joy really suits happy people :) But I wouldn't use it as a first name.

I knew a girl in high school whose name was Mary Elizabeth Joy. She went by Mary until either high school or junior high, where she looked at her name and realized that people might start calling her Mary Beth to separate her from any other Mary's (or they had already started to do so). And she HATED the idea of being a Mary Beth, to her it sounded ditzy and oddly 50s. So she had everyone call her Joy. Even now, I can't picture another name on her besides Joy.
I rather like Joy. I think it's not only more youthful, but also more versatile, than the variant Joyce.

This name is a great middle name. As a first name, not as good.

To be honest, I think the name is a bit tacky, and it immediately makes me think that the daughter was named in the afterglow of the birth. It's a bit sentimental, and not in a good way. Plus, it makes me think about the ''Joy to the World'' song.

I want to use this as a middle name for my future daughter. I love the sound and the obvious meaning of the name and it's also the name of a very good friend of mine, so it would honour her as well.

I like the name Joy, because it is a short, simple but very strong name. One of my friends is called Joy and I think it suits her like perfect, although she doesn't like it, the name fits her.

I love Joy, because it's so joyful! A good friend of mine is called Joy. She doesn't like her name, I don't understand why not, because it's a beautiful name.

I like the name Joy for a middle name but not as a first. My middle name is Joy and I like it. I want to name my first girl Violet Joy.

This is the name of one of my best friends and I really like it. She doesn't like it herself but I think it really suits her; she's always happy!

This is my first name and ever since I was a little kid, I've strongly disliked it. I live in Holland and there are a lot of Dutch words that rhyme with it. It's quite annoying to have to live with this name. However, I don't discourage people to call their kids Joy, because it's a unique and strong name. The name also suits my personality. People generally see me as a happy person and most people love my name. I just hope it'll grow on me and I'll learn to like it.

Joy is my sister's name. She brings Joy to our house, and is very funny. Her name fits her extremely well.

If you want to name your daughter something with a happy meaning, this is a nice choice. Joy is a beautiful name. It sounds way better than Happy, too.

At first, I really hated the name Joy and didn't like telling people what my middle name is, but it's really grown on me and now I love it! I think it's especially great as a middle name, and I think it sounds really nice with my first name, Amanda.

This is my mother's name and I don't like it. It seems very old fashioned. I don't like the word 'joy' anyway.

I know a girl named Jubilee Joy. Wouldn't it be funny if she turned out to be depressed or an ax murderer? Funny peculiar, obviously, not funny haha.

A very sweet name, but the name 'Jubilee Joy' is just WEIRD. If her sister's name was Charity Chastity or something like that, I'd probably have to ax-murder their mother.

The Bulgarian name "Radost" (the stress is on the "a") may be considered as an equivalent to "Joy", beacause "Radost" is a feminine name and the word "radost" means "joy" in Bulgarian.

Not necessarily a bad name, but I recently stayed with a girl on a university visit with this name; she was very weird--all she wanted to do was play D&D and roleplay Star Wars. Weird behaviour if you were to ask me.
