Comments for LLOYD:

The double-L, "Ll," in Lloyd would be pronounced "kl" with a soft-k, perhaps like the German "ch" in "Bach". Related names, I thought, included Cloyd, maybe Clyde.

The double l is not pronounced like cl, but just as a voiceless l. The l after a c would usually be voiceless. All you have to do is leave off the c and you've got the sound. (Not hard, is it?)

Oops! Actually, that's not QUITE right, though it's plenty close enough. (Start with the voiceless l, but shift the weight of the tongue firmly to the point of contact and force the air out instead of just letting it out. Better yet, get yourself a native speaker and imitate him/her. (See the article "voiceless alveolar lateral fricative" on Wikipedia.)

I LOVE this name so much. I know this guy called Lloyd and he is the hottest piece of man I have ever seen in my life. When I think of this name I think of a hot sexy Greek god. This, without a doubt, is what I am going to call my first boy (if I have one).

When used as a first name, this name is not always masculine. The main character of the novel The Little Colonel, by Annie Fellows Johnston in 1895 (turned into a movie with Shirley Temple in the starring role in 1935) is named Lloyd.

It reminds me of a cartoon about an alien called Lloyd in Space.

Actually, the Prime Minister of Great Britain during World War I was named David Lloyd George.

He was one of the "big four", after World War I, (with Woodrow Wilson for the United States, Vittorio Orlando for Italy, George Lloyd for Britain, and Georges Clemenceau for France).

I'm not sure why, but I like this name. It sounds sophisticated, and it has that old-fashioned charm, even though I'm not exactly nostalgic of any decades except for the 90s and 70s. It also reminds me of a wonderful track by Camera Obscura, titled Lloyd, I'm Ready to be Heartbroken.

This name is awesome, and VERY common in my school. At one point there were seven in my form class!

Lloyd in Wales doesn't follow the right rules. It isn't normally pronounced with the "LL" sound, but if you wanna go ahead and learn some lingo I'm not gonna stop you. The root of the name, however, DOES start with "LL".

So, here's a quick masterclass:
Right, when you go about saying "ll", make sure you're in the mindset of a fairly evil, furious snake, cat, goose or duck. Stick you tongue to the roof of your mouth, and breathe, hard. WARNING: Violent spitting may ensue, and friends may disown you. Never mind, though, you speak a tiny wee bit of the oldest living language in Europe.

[And for a bit of randomly-related info:"Ll","Ch","Th","Ff","Ng","Ph","Rh" and "Dd" are all regarded as single letters in Welsh. Just to confuse you :')]

I don't like Lloyd. It sounds so geeky to me. I don't know why, it just does. I don't like the spelling of it either-the two L's make me want to pronounce the first letter way longer than it should be.

Fantastic name! It sounds like a name that would grow well, cute for a little boy and mature for a man.
