"JOYCE IS A GRANNY NAME NOT A GRANDFATHER NAME
ENOUGH SAID. WHAT BOY WOULD EVER WANT TO BE BURDEN WITH A FEMININE, PRISSY NAME? YOU HONESTLY WANT TO MAKE HIM A TARGET FOR BULLYING? BECAUSE NAMING HIM "JOYCE" WILL MAKE THAT HAPPEN FOR HIM. ITS JUST BORDERLINE STUPID TO NAME A BOY JOYCE AND SUICIDAL.
OTHER MALE TURNED GIRL NAMES TO USE!" Dec. 29, 2014:
"It's bad enough on a girl today, let alone a boy! Whoever would want to these days be named after the late Joyce Grenfell or any of the other Joyces of this world? It's a granny name, not a grandad name! No wonder Joyce Grenfell was definitely a woman as opposed to Joyce Kilmer who wrote "Trees" in 1913" Dec. 8, 2006:
