User comments for Joyce (Meaning / History Only)

Disagree that it died out after the 14th century: there are plenty of examples of it in records all through the 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th centuries in England.

It is English and it means joyful. It is only meant for girls. A similiar girl's name is Joy.

No, and no you are completely wrong about the origin and original gender.

Connotation for the name Joyce means "merry".

The Gaelic surname Joyce/Seoige comes from the Welsh word, "sais", meaning a Saxon or English person.
