All the Leroy's I've encountered have been black or mixed race. I don't know if that's just coincidence or if it's a name more commonly used in that community, but just throwing it out there that it might have associations with one ethnicity over others. And personally I'm not keen on it, I find it quite middle aged, as both Lee and Roy aren't names commonly used on children any more.

Makes me think of a scene in Paper Moon. Moses Pray is going to "rassle" a hillbilly for the right to drive his truck. One of the other country brothers says, "Make him say 'calf rope,' Leroy!"
When I lived in Kansas, there were two sets of twin brothers in town. I kid you not, the first set were named Lee and Roy, and the second set were named Lee-roy and Roy-lee.
A more modern ref of course is LEEEEEEROY..JENKINNNNS.Married since June 2007, expecting our first child on Christmas Day, 2013

I don't like it on a dog or a child to be honest.
