"I know a Guy, he's the best! But that isn't relevant, just thought I'd expose my bias, but it is quite annoying when someone asks "who?" when you say "GUY" and then you have to clarify that it's a name. Guy and Missy go well together <3" Oct. 2, 2007:
"I've met a few other Guys. (even one spelled Gui!) Most people mistake me for saying "God" when I tell them my name in a crowded room though.
French people pronounce it correctly and call you "ghee." If the pronunciation is in the correct french, it is probably less of a problem. Your boy named Guy will correct them and there is less of an issue with the correct french than the hard english pronunciation." Apr. 29, 2007:

"Also exists as a male forename in Japan, though in this case the spelling is "Gai", as in two Super Sentai characters - Gai Yuuki (aka Black Condor) in 1991's 'Choujin Sentai Jetman' and Gai Ikari (aka Gokai Silver) in 2012's 'Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger'." Feb. 22, 2019:
