Kew Says:


Joyce would make such a handsome and dapper choice for a boy. It was originally a male name, and now that it's out of favour for girls, it could be just the moment to reclaim it! There's also the Old French form Josse.

RoddyThlayli Says:


I like Royce better.

AldabellaxWulfe Says:


I'm not keen on Royce and I've never been a fan of Jace, but Joyce is such a fresh, charmismatic choice. It has a classically elegant quality combined with a sturdy feel that would work very well for a modern boy. I admit that, while I think it makes for a fine girl name, it has a very dated, almost cumbersome quality but, for a boy, I'm really starting to like it!

Moony Says:
