Late 16C English Given Names: Notes on Joyce

Late Sixteenth Century English Given Names

Notes on the name Joyce

Joyce: Probably fem. in most cases; at least four definitely are. Joyce ap Richard is apparently a man's name, but by this time it is quite possible to find ap used with women's names; there seems to be no way to decide whether this person was a man or a woman.
