  • "My name is Troy and I was named after my father. If he were alive he would be 95 this year of 2016. So, it is a very old name and I don't know anyone else personally with the name Troy. My last name is Brawner and my family originally came from Germany. Yeras ago when I applied for a credit card, I was told there was someone in PA that had the exact same name as Mine, Troy Price Brawner, Junior. As far as I know, no relations."

  • "The name Troy is considered very sexually appealing by many people outside of the United States, particularly in France and Spain. In the United States, the name isn't fully appreciated because it was extremely popular amongst teenage girls when a film called "High School Musical" came out. However, there was a time in the U.S when the name was very well appreciated-back when a famous actor named Troy Donahue was at the peak of his popularity. That time has passed and although the name is generally well liked in the U.S and extremely loved everywhere else, I suppose some other famous guy must make the name popular again."

  • "This is the name of my 2year old. Its a great strong name. He's a pretty shy kid but very tough.

  • "My name is Troy. I was born in 1964 and have always disliked my name. Though I was usually the only one in my school with that name I always cringed a bit when I heard it spoken or when I introduced myself. I have never been comfortable pronouncing it out loud. Other people have told me they like my name and I, too, got (get) asked if I was named after Troy Donahue (sp?). I was actually named after a race car driver from the 1950s-60s named Troy Ruttman - youngest winner of the Indy 500." Jan. 3, 2010: Report as inappropriate
