Imagine that you name your child Lloyd and they decide to take Spanish class once they get to high school.
It's the first day of class and the teacher is taking attendance in her thick Spanish accent. She pronounces your child's name like "Yoyd". How horrible.

There's definitely something that I like about the name Lloyd. Perhaps it's the two Ls at the beginning of the name.
