Think you've decided on a name? Check out where it ranks on the official list of the most popular baby names first.
Just heard of a baby called this. Not a name I've heard in years and wonder if it's due a revival? I think it's pretty and not as 'mumsy' as Joyce.
I know a little girl called Joy. Such a snappy and positive name.
Joyce is hideous x 10 though.
Joy is a beautiful name.
Love the name Joy. It was top of my list for dc4, but he was a boy!
Top of my list but dc2 was a boy. Also it sounds awful with our surname. Surname starts with a vowel and is 2 syllables- joy kind of melded in to it, not in a good way.
Joy is a fab name. My nan is Joyce so I always thought Joy would be cool as a MNThe only Joy I have met was a Filipina girl.
I've met lots of Joy's. Great name!
I know a baby Joy. She was named after her grandmother who she didn't meet and because her mother lost a baby at 22 weeks.
My friend was named Joy but changed her name at university. She was tired of constantly being told to 'cheer up' and be jolly. She is quite a quiet person and hated the first day of any new job particularly.
Great name classic but unusual! Do it!
I'm not keen personally, but it's much better than Joyce.
Love it! The prettiest girl in my school was called Joy and I recently met a baby Joy and thought: how appropriate (for all the joy she will bring her parents).
Love it was going to be DS name, had he been a DD...
I think it's very nice. Unusual but not weird. I know a Joy and have never heard any comments about "Cheer up!" or anything like that.
Much better than Joyce!! Joy is a pretty name x
