Greek, French"of Troyes"
Troy Origin and Meaning
The name Troy is both a boy's name and a girl's name meaning "of Troyes".
Troy shot to popularity as a first name in tandem with that of 1960s heartthrob Troy (born Merle) Donahue; its image has now, thanks in part to the Brad Pitt-starring epic, Troy, receded back to conjuring up the ancient site of the Trojan wars. A handful of baby girls also receive the name each year, down from a peak of 119 births in 1961.
