A TV-game-character bears this name. He is my favourite character in the game "Super Smash Bros. Melee".

I like Roy as a nickname for Robert, it sounds more unique than Bob or Robby.

I hate the name Roy. It's far too common and the sound just makes me think of a freaky loner who lives in his basement. If you're named Roy I don't mean anything by it that's just the image it brings to mind.

When I think of Roy, I think of a rather cute looking sword guy with reddish-brown hair and cool attack moves, or an adorable stuffed toy that was my art teacher's, that has it's own website. Either way, those things gave me good impressions. :)

I guess it might also mean "king" in French, since I can remember reading a book which says that King Louis XIV, if my memory serves me right, is called "le roi soleil" which means "the sun king".

I assaociate the name Roy with two great starting pitchers in Major League Baseball. First Roy Oswalt of the Houston Astros and Roy Halladay of the Toronto Blue Jays.

Name of the leader of the replicants in Blade Runner. For this reason, I'll always associate the name with "king."

I think Roy is a very strong, masculine name. A great name to give to a baby boy.

I don't like this as an independent name, there aren't many good nicknames for it.

To me, this is one of the most boring names there is for a boy because of how short it is.

More people should be called Roy. All the Roys I know of are old men and I think it deserves a revival.

It's a redneck name, and has the unfortunate association with those awful Fire Emblem games.
