"Named after my dad. Know it is the Americanization of Roi, which is french for king. Only drawback is that it can't be shortened to a nickname, something most other kids had. Very proud to bear the name." Jun. 27, 2015:

"My dad's name is Roy. I like it, but I know that he really dislikes it. He thinks it is boring, and he says he always hated that he didn't have a nickname that he could go by.

"There are four people in my family named Roy. It's kind of awkward at family reunions. It's like if I ever go out with my dad and uncle somewhere, every time someone says "Roy", everyone turns around." Jul. 27, 2008:
"Roy Rogers and Roy Orbison both bore this name, along with the fictional Roy Koopa from the Super Mario Bros. video games (he is called Bully Koopa in the 1990s cartoon television series 'The Adventures Of Super Mario Bros. 3' and 'The Adventures Of Super Mario World')." Jun. 3, 2008:
