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 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.
