  • "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: Report as inappropriate

  • "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: Report as inappropriate

  • "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: Report as inappropriate

  • "My husband's name is Guy and I really didn't like it. We have two son's and neither of them are names after their father. I wish he had a better name but I love him anyway!<3" Jun. 21, 2008: Report as inappropriate
