For a boy, pronounced Guy-us.

Classic Greek name and features heavily in the greatest TV show of all time - Battlestar Gallactica.

(had to name change as thus would totally out me IRL)

I love it. I would really hope that society would move forwards enough in the 10-11 years before this became the issue that people are making it out to be that gay isn't a derogatory term. On a side note went to school with a Guy and he was never teased for his name so don't see it for this name.

I would hope so, but I can't see that happening in reality. DD is in year 8 at school and I know just how nasty some kids can get.

I don't see why Guy would be a problem.

Would you pronounce Caius Kai-us or traditionally, like keys?

Gaius is Sooo cool, id have it for a middle name. I wanted Starbuck for a girl but dp said no (also perfect for xfiles - so perfect!). Id go for Apollo perhaps, hes also sooo cool.
