Roy: baby boy name meaning and popularity


This name has an interesting dual meaning: In French, it's "king." In Celtic, it's "red-haired." Whether your little Roy lives up to one meaning, both meanings, or neither, he'll definitely be the king of your heart. Even when he's being kind of an asshole.


It's already a three-letter name. Can't simplify that much more.

Famous people named Roy:

Singers Roy Orbison and Roy Acuff; actors Roy Rogers and Roy "RJ" Mitte; co-founder of the Walt Disney Company, Roy Disney.

Fun fact:

ROY G. BIV is the popular acronym for the orders of the color in a rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.
