there are far worse names out there, but I don't like the car connection. prefer Roy (my uncles name), think it deserves a lot more attention. short, masculine I love it.

Navicular Says:


Wow. There is so much dislike for this name. I disagree with the description (which sounds biased in my opinion). Roy is awful far worse than Royce.
My brother has this name and everyone I've met loves it.

"Make up your mind: Roy or Reece, but not both" this sums it up pretty perfectly.
