Comments for TROY:

I have a female friend named Troy and I think it suits her really well. I prefer Troy for a girl.

I prefer Troy on a girl. In Latin the city name "Troy" is a female noun, so I have always thought the word Troy was very feminine. It is a great name, but it is better on a girl.

That's not true. "Troy" isn't female or Latin. "Troia" is the Latin name for Troy which is feminine. Troy is just the ugly anglicised form of the name.

Anyway, I don't think this makes the name feminine. Troy is a very masculine name to me.

Troy will always be a masculine name for me, simple and strong but not too common.

I love the name Troy on a girl. It's actually my great grandmother's name and my middle name.

What the heck? Troy is a BOYS name. I've never met a girl Troy because it's a dumb name to give your daughter. A girl with this name would be, without a doubt, teased. Geez, think about the kid's feelings.

I pity those poor girls who are named Troy. It's not a good girl's name at all.

After High School Musical, this name to me was horrible. Everyone is obsessed with this name, so I don't want my son to be named after "the boy from High School Musical."

Troy is a bad name in my opinion, it sounds too much like a town name to be a person's name. Troy would sound good on an animal though, the similar sounding name Roy is really nice for a human.

To me this is a very masculine name. I like it! I can't imagine naming a girl this.

I used to really love Troy - it's strong, masculine (how could you EVER think of giving this name to a girl?), wise, loyal and determined, and sums up for me a boy with all of those qualities. But now with the arrival of the "High School Musical" craze the name has been destroyed. The name has become associated with cutesy pop rubbish (no offence intended to Mr Efron) and will probably now fall into overuse as well! Grrr!

Troy is my dad's name, I can't imagine him with another name! Very classic, not overused, yet still not unheard of, and my dad loves that it spells Yort backwards!

Troy is one of my favorite boy's names for a few reasons:

1. It suits a young child well, yet not overly-modern
2. It's strong, and could fit someone older as well
3. Like the way it sounds.

Uhh, hate to burst your bubbles BTN audience, but Troy is such a masculine name, it isn't even funny. Please, ladies (and gentleman) out there - don't name your daughter Troy.

It sounds like a child with intellectual and developmental difficulties to me.

Or a gay prostitute.

Troy seems fine to me. I wouldn't recommend Troia as a baby name however; that word doesn't have the best of connotations in Italian.

I really like this name. It's very masculine and will age well. Shame about the high school musical association though, that could lead to some teasing. But I don't think it's anything major that should prohibit you from using it if you really like it.

I have a five year old daughter who my husband and I named Troye (pronounced Troy). We have had copious compliments on her name from all ages of people with the exceptions of a few negative comments, like "that's a boys name'. My name is Erin which is a girl and boy name, my husbands name is Shawn which I have also known a few woman named Shawn. Neither of us have ever been bugged about our names. Troye is in Kindergarden now and she is most definetely not the only girl with a so called "boys name". There is a little girl named chase, another named Austin and another named rylee in her class. She has never been bugged either about her name by her peers and to be quite honest the only negativity has come from adults who are narrow minded and ignorant to the fact that there are trends when it comes to naming children, and it is the personal choice of the parents. We have had much more positive feedback on her name than negative and if you were to meet her, you would see that no other name would suit her. She rocks it! :)
