[QUOTE=lineska;1889636]I'm sure you will get mixed responses, but I say go for it!QUOTE]
This, exactly. Because it is a family name, honouring your uncle and yourself, and because you would only use it as a mn, I think it is entirely usable. Of course, I say this as a huge fan of unisex, and such names myself. My favourite now, being May as a middle for a boy. Getting a little distracted here, I've come up with the combo I'm loving right now- Jeremy Emerald May, yes, for a boy, with the nn Jem. Maybe somewhat overboard to some people, but your combos with the mn Joy are totally reasonable.
Yeaa, so go for it if it has meaning for you, and you love it.

Joy for a boy. As a girls' name it's tired and dated; for a boy, it's fresh and sleek. By all means, go for it!
